Beneficial Educational Resources on Futures Trading

The futures market is volatile, and it cuts both ways. Leverage that makes it profitable can also ruin reckless, undisciplined traders overnight. Most brokers have paper trading available on their platforms, so those who are new to futures should take advantage and learn with these tools before going live with real money. Mitigate risk with stop loss orders at all times, and cut losses quickly instead of adding contracts and attempting to flip your way out of a losing position. Also, use mini instruments when available, with lower margin requirements, until you have sufficient capital to buy and sell more expensive contracts.

Even though the potential is there, don't try to make too many profits at once. If things aren't going well, often times quitting for the day and collecting one's thoughts is the best decision. New opportunities come along daily. Markets are open nearly 24 hours, so set a schedule and stick to it. Avoid trading while tired or distracted, and please don't listen to the advice of others. Do research on fundamentals affecting markets as well as paying attention to TA. Watch key indices, and listen to accurate, real-time news during the session to stay aware of shifting trends.

Trade smart, trade safely, and have fun.
