Learn How to Place Future Trades

Business graphFutures trading adds a dimension to investing that you don’t get with stocks. With stocks, you buy at the current price with expectations that they will go up. With futures trading, you speculate about what an asset will be worth at a specific time in the future; up or down. Knowing how to place futures trades enhances the scenarios whereby an experienced futures trader can generate significant profits.

How to Place Futures Trades

Do you remember when gold was trading at $260.00 an ounce, silver was at $4.00 an ounce, and oil was at $20.00 per barrel? Conversely, how about when gold was trading at around $1900 per ounce, silver was at $50.00 an ounce, and oil was at $140.00 per barrel?

The sharp price fluctuations in commodities over the last number of years have attracted the attention of more and more retail investors. That’s because trading commodities like silver, gold, oil, and coffee can be very lucrative.

However, it’s important to remember that futures trading can be risky and is not for inexperienced investors. For every dollar you make, someone else loses a dollar. On top of that, prices can be extremely volatile.

As a result, investors interested in futures trading need to understand the costs and risks involved before plunking any money down on the price direction of frozen concentrated orange juice.

To become a successful commodities trader you need to really understand the commodities market. This means learning about each individual commodity, its main uses, the major producing countries and stability of their governments, and historical supply and demand data.

You also need to take into consideration what affects the demand of each commodity, including weather, disasters, economic news, and geopolitical tension. If you’re an astute trader, you understand that learning about futures never ends.

To master the ins and outs of futures trading, it’s imperative that you take a futures trading course. What should you look for in a futures trading course? Professional educators, excellent customer support, and simulated trading accounts for testing different trading strategies.

After all, the more you understand about commodities and learn how to manage risk, the greater your chances are of making consistent profits and avoiding expensive errors.

I wanted to let you know that I had taken your course in the fall of 2013. I took your advice and used demo accounts for the last quarter of 2013. I switched to real money trading account in the Near Year, when I finally felt comfortable. Following the lessons taught to me by you (don’t jump on a moving train, peaks and valleys, EMA..etc), I wanted to let you know that I have been successful beyond my own expectations. Thank you very much – taking the Learn-to-Trade course was, by far, the best decision I made in my business career.

I took your course in 2008 and loved it. Since then I have been using what I learned at Learn-to-Trade to nicely supplement my pension income. Wanting a carefree type of trading, I have for the most part just sold options and made a monthly income which is a nice addition to my pension. I know I never would have made this kind of trading income without Learn-to-Trade. Thank you!

Hi George,

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing work on the tutorials especially Options trading.   Prior to joining, I had underestimated the quality of the trainings but they certainly far exceeded my expectations. Only I wish I’d found you 5-10 years ago!
