Learn Futures Trading With The Canadian Futures Trader
Hello fellow futures trader! Welcome to my FREE course. Rest assured, I have nothing to sell you (seriously, I’m not selling anything, just sharing the information I’ve learned over the years). I encourage you to surf around my website, if you are interested in learning more about funded futures programs (companies that will put up the capital for you to trade with) I’m your guy. Reviews of the best trader evaluation funding companies, and some exclusive deals and discounts also. Now, on to the course…
Welcome to my Free Futures Trading course! Below is a quick summary of what is covered in each section. I hope it helps new traders with some fundamental concepts of trading, as well as some specific set ups I look for in the treasury products. I spent quite a bit of time putting all this together, and will only add to it further in the future.
This is not an exhaustive course, there is plenty of terminology, concepts, trading styles and more I don’t touch on. You won’t be a trading expert after reading through the content and watching the videos. I think though it will help quite a few traders with some introductory concepts, as well as trading the treasuries using the concepts of order flow.

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Hypothetical Performance Disclosure:
Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
