What are Professional and Non-Professional subscribers?

A non-professional subscriber is a natural person who is NOT:

  1. Registered or qualified in any capacity with the SEC, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, any state securities agency, any securities exchange or association or any commodities or futures contract market or association;
  2. Engaged as an "investment advisor" as that term is defined in Section 202(a)(11) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (whether or not registered or qualified under that Act); or
  3. Employed by a bank or other organization exempt from registration under federal or state securities laws to perform functions that would require registration or qualification if such functions were performed for an organization not so exempt.

A professional subscriber is represented by all other persons who do NOT meet the definition of a non-professional subscriber.
