MoneyWeek videos are designed to help you become a better investor, and to give you a better understanding of the markets. They’re aimed at both beginners and more experienced investors.

In all our videos we explain things in an easy-to-understand way. Some videos are about important ideas and concepts. Others are about investment stories and themes in the news. The emphasis is on clarity and brevity. We don’t want to waste your time with a 20-minute video that could easily be so much shorter.

We’ve already made over 200 financial videos and we add more each week. You can see the full archive here at MoneyWeek videos.

If the seller had to pick up a ton for 3000$ and sell it for 2500$, hes – 500$, but then you say he buys back.the contract for 3000$, which means that he would be down another 500$, so all together it would be 1000$ he is down, not 500$.
