About E*TRADE Financial and Important Notices

Important Note: Options transactions are intended for sophisticated
investors and are complex, carry a high degree of risk, and are not
suitable for all investors. For more information, please read the 
and Risks of Standardized Options
 prior to applying for an
account. Also, there are specific risks associated with covered call
writing, including the risk that the underlying stock could be sold at
the exercise price when the current market value is greater than the
exercise price the call writer will receive. A covered call writer
forgoes participation in any increase in the stock price above the call
exercise price and continues to bear the downside risk of stock
ownership if the stock price decreases more than the premium received.

Because of the importance of tax considerations to all options
transactions, the investor considering options should consult their tax
adviser as to how taxes affect the outcome of each options strategy.
Commissions and other costs may be a significant factor. An options
investor may lose the entire amount of their investment in a relatively
short period of time.

The Income and Repair tools are provided for informational and/or
educational purposes and should not be used or construed as investment
advice, financial guidance, or an offer, solicitation, or recommendation
to buy, sell, or hold any security, commodity futures, futures options,
or investment by E*TRADE. Before buying or selling any investment, you
should carefully consider your financial situation, investment
objectives, risk tolerance, and liquidity needs and consult your broker,
financial advisor, and/or licensed tax professional to determine for
yourself whether the investment is suitable for you. Past performance of
securities, commodity futures, and futures options are not indicative of
future results.
