Hi Clay!! Let’s say I buy one future contract, the spot price is 1.50$ for future delivery (in 2 months). Then the price moves to 2.50$ by the settlement date. If I’m correct I would make 1$ per contract. What is confusing me is that you said when you buy a future (agreement) and whatever happens to the sugar price I will settle the contract for the price I agreed to buy it, that is 1.50$, so no profit. Then, how can you make profits if the price is fixed in the future?

How do you extrapolate the sentiment of the futures market. All i see on there sites is the number of contracts sold, Take bitcoin on bakkt. What should i be looking at to see of the sentiment is bullish? And maybe in the future you can do a video on how the futures paper market can control prices of acutal commodities ie manipulation

this masturbaitor is still on youtube pretending to teach and make money? Wow the scammers never go away until someone sues their asses.

George Trader says:

This introduction was better than any introduction any graduate student of finance can get today…NEXT CLASSES should be focused on the mechanics of trading the most liquid future contracts which i think are oil and the financial futures. The mechanics means anything ones needs to start trading. The computer , screens, brokers, trading platforms, data, costs…all explained in great detail…Strategies should be available for the money or for the students of the university

Mike Dee says:

Futures trading is difficult and much more volatile than trading stocks imho. I’ve lost big money trading s&p futures. Know what you are getting yourself into and it’s not the best investment vehicle to start off trading imho.
