Help for beginner

Hi All,

I was just reading about futures trading, and I would like to learn more about it. I literally know nothing. Are there any good books out there that I could read on this? What is the best way to get my feet wet?

Thanks!

So, to me, trading futures sounds like just a more confusing version of trading stocks. Is there a real benefit over trading futures vs trading stocks?

Assuming positive expectancy you get benefits of leverage and tax.

I trade both. I enjoy swing trading equities and day trading futures. Different methods.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

IMO, They are better in every way except the leverage provided is much greater so it is much easier to lose all your money.
