In this episode of our beginners guide to trading series we are going to be discussing what are futures contracts? Most people when they start trading they get involved with markets like stocks or even Forex. There are a lot of different ways to trade (and successfully) but most people don’t know about futures contracts.

To give you a brief overview of what are futures contracts ones must understand their history. Futures contracts started with an agreement between buyers and sellers on mainly agricultural products. Things like pigs, coffee, etc.

It didn’t take too long for the speculators (people who bet on the direction and value of these contracts) to step in and start taking calculated risks on what direction the futures contracts would go.

To find out more how futures contracts where applied to the financial markets and how E-mini Futures were created have a look at the video.
