This site is for people intending to day trade futures contracts for profit, although much of what appears here is equally applicable to short term trading any investment instrument including options, equities and foreign currency.
Learning to trade futures properly gives you a chance of financial independence. As a business, it features:
(a) no staff requirement,
(b) a short daily time commitment,
(c) modest capital investment, and
(d) simplicity of operation from any location of your choosing.
Its drawbacks are that it requires considerable self discipline and is usually undertaken in isolation. People who value the support of colleagues may find the typical trader’s solitary work life too challenging.
It is important to understand the risks of trading. Please read this notice:
