Admittedly retirement account rules are different across the world, but if we consider the case where retirement accounts are tax advantaged, then the expectancy of money put into a retirement account will nearly always be greater than the expectancy of speculatively trading futures. I'm not trying to preach from an ivory tower, but one reason many people have a bad financial situation, is because they make bad financial decisions.
