The characteristics of unlimited profit potential and limited risk lure traders to long options but we argue that limited risk doesn't necessarily mean less risk. In fact, it is quite possible that option buying is far riskier than option selling simply due to the probability of success that each strategy faces.
One of the most frustrating aspects of trading commodities is getting comfortable with how each contract is quoted, what the point value or multiplier of each contract is and most importantly how to calculate the profit, loss and risk of a trade.
There are several widely traded contracts in the realm of interest rate futures trading. Each of these futures contracts carries slightly differing market characteristics, and in some cases contract sizes, and point values.
Traders are often lured to into the futures markets with a fascination for day trading. The thought of trading leveraged contracts without overnight risk is appealing to many, but underestimated by most. As a retail broker I have had the pleasure, and the pain, of watching day traders attempt to profit through strategies ranging from scalping to "position" intraday trading which spans several hours.
Sometimes it is the small details that make the big difference in performance. Familiarity with order types and how to properly place each of them is critical to being a successful trader. Market prices and dynamics are ever-changing, making every second count. Regardless of whether you are trading online or through a broker, knowing the type of order you need to place and placing it accurately is vita
Thanks to the CME; financial institutions, investment managers, corporations and private entrepreneurs have a regulated and centralized forum in which they can manage their risk exposure to changes in currency valuations. Naturally, where there are hedging opportunities there is also room for mass speculation and that is exactly what occurs every Sunday afternoon through Friday at the CME.
