Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

What are futures contract?

A futures contract is a type of derivative or financial contract in which two parties agree to make a certain transaction on a specified future date at a specified current price. A futures contract does not give you ownership of a commodity or product. You are purely entering into a contract to purchase or sell the underlying products on a future date at a certain price specified in the contract. This is all what I Know about Futures Contract, if someone has more information to share, please free to share with me
