Terms Of Use

  • This is a contract between you (“you”) the subscriber and Pythagoras Investment Timing Index Pty Ltd.  Please read these terms carefully.  Subscribing to the web based subscription service which provides general recommendations regarding securities is known as Pythagoras (“Service”).  By and upon subscribing to the Service you are deemed to accept the terms set out below.  These terms should be read in conjunction with the Financial Services Guide issued by Pythagoras Investment Timing Index Pty Ltd.  If you do not accept the terms and conditions of this Agreement, then you must not subscribe to the Service and must immediately exit this site.

How the Service Works

The Pythagoras Investment Timing Indexes are based on a new, revolutionary mathematical understanding of the stock market.  They show that events are predictable from changes in Volatility.  This leads to signals to buy and sell ahead of the stock market shifts!  It’s a flexible subscriptions based program.  The services will be delivered via email and the Pythagoras Investment Timing Index (www.pythagorasinvesting.com) website.


Once you have chosen the listed Australian Stocks to which you wish to subscribe, any recommendations will be sent to your nominated email account.  The email will contain details of the buy or sell recommendation.

Pythagoras will generally email a notification of any recommendations during the middle of the day to be acted on the same day.

Buy Recommendations

When recommending buys, some recommendations make use of a price range of 101%, 103% or 105% of the base recommendation price and some don’t.  Where there is a price range, the top of the range is the maximum price you should pay.  Where there is no upper price range the maximum price payable is the recommendation price.  Our philosophy is that it is better to wait than overpay.

There are several hours in which your buying can be executed – many clients use limit orders over the day to buy to make it simpler.

Sell Recommendations

There will be lengths of time in between buy and sell recommendations – indeed there may be several recommended buys before a sell.  When the recommendation is to sell, we recommend selling immediately.  There isn’t a minimum price – just a sell.

Allocation of Capital

We believe the best approach to capital allocation is to subscribe to three to five stocks from different sectors to bring diversification to your portfolio.  With more stocks comes a greater overall success.  Choosing 3 or more stocks lead to significant discounts.


Subscriptions are for 12 months.  Payments are made in advance – either pay 12 months in advance and receive a discount or pay monthly.  When you subscribe, you are expected to pay on receipt of your invoice.   If payment is not received, the subscription will end (under clause 10) and amounts owing will be pursued.  To reinstate the service, full payment and an administrative fee will be required.

Each subscriber is granted access to the service on good faith whilst their payments are up-to-date however Pythagoras Investment Timing Index Pty Ltd reserves the right to render invalid any subscription where an officer believes a member in breach of the Terms and Conditions.
