This person’s attorney did not recommend a disclaimer for discussing investments online. The asker is wondering why.
I too am curious why your lawyer didn’t provide an appropriate disclaimer for you to use. Appropriate disclaimers are important in the investment arena. Of course, a disclaimer will not stop actual investment advice from being investment advice. This means you need to walk the fine line of providing advice and simply providing useful, educational information. I think you should go back to your lawyer, or a different lawyer who is knowledgeable in the area, and ask for assistance in crafting a proper disclaimer.
