Summary – My Advice To You
First, I hope the free futures course was of use to some of you. I’ll do my best to keep this updated, at least quarterly.
What I want to emphasize for new traders: There’s no magic website, video or book that will make you an ace trader. I can’t tell you “do these 3 things and you’ll be successful”. No one can, be very, very wary of anyone who does. Think of trading as an art form, not a science. Even if you want to copy someone’s style, put your own flair on it to make it your own.
My recommendation is scour the resources above and more. Search, spend hours just digging around online. Watch more videos, read more books. Realize that about 90% of what you come across will be junk, or just people trying to sell you a false dream. Then take what you’ve learned, try it out. Lastly, refine it, make it your own.
I’m not trying to convert anyone to trading treasuries. In fact I doubt they would be the best product to trade for most people. Find what works for you – the products you trade, the style of trading, the tools you use, the times of day, and more. This is why no 2 traders are alike, there are so many variable factors. The key is finding the variables that best suit you and all work together.
Never stop trying to improve. You can always add to your backpack of tools.
I sincerely wish each of you success with futures trading, and encourage you to invest the time in yourself to be the best futures trader you can be!
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.
