He said "In the Russel, it's a dollar a point" then the subsequent slide says it's "$100/point" ….

6:0711:30 the silver story. skip it if you want but it's funny though.

KeninBoulder says:

Yeah but you guys started talking about the Notional Value with out telling us what it represents and why we need to find it. I thought this was awesome right up to when you started talking about the Notional Value.

Shadow Trader says:

Nice introduction to futures 🙂 I have been trading for the last 10years and been in of love of them ever since!

JP Smith says:

"futures on their own, it's impossible to be successful. Combined with the rest of your portfolio, it's a monster entity" ….That does not make sense. If they lost you money on their own, they would also lose you money on your portfolio—assuming same trades performed.

i day trade stocks very successfully.

hey guys, great intro video! can you please clarify those spots:
14:52 "on their own, they is a 97% chance you're going out of business" talking about ETFs
15:10 "on their own it is virtually impossible to trade futures and be successful"

I think it's interesting until he starts telling his silver story, which is out of context.Get to point

Leggo My Ego says:

You forgot to do an introduction to trading futures.

Darrell Webster says:

The greatest upside using Futures over Options is the no time decay. Trading is a tough profession, the instrument used to practise your chosen profession should contain the lest obstacles to success and time decay in options is an obstacle to success.


do the nasdaq 100 emini's futures move exactly like the nasdaq 100 index? or are they calculated based on supply and demand? the march contract seems to move nearly identical to the stock index.
