Futures trading was once a way for farmers to hedge against price movements and to guarantee themselves a stable income. However, in the past decade, futures trading revolutionized the way investors and speculators profited. Trading in the futures market is a golden opportunity for traders to not only hedge against price movement, but to also profit in large amounts through market speculation.
When deciding which futures contract to trade, there are many questions to keep in mind. These include: What are the future contract’s margin requirements? How about contract size and levels of liquidity of the futures contract? What is the duration of the future’s contract? With PCM International, you can get the answers to all your questions.
