Futures and Options
Are you a beginner who wants to learn how to trade commodity futures and/or options on futures?
Do you have a trading system that you want to test? Maybe you want to see how good are your "gut instincts" for
trading the markets. In each case, it's a good idea to start by paper trading.
Beginning traders often lose money because of simple mistakes, for example,
misreading a futures price or using a stop or limit order incorrectly. Sharpening these skills
by paper trading can not only save money down the road but the experience from paper trading can help give you the confidence
to move to an actual trading account.
But to be an effective educational tool, paper trading must be done correctly. Third-party and professional involvement
is necessary both to provide needed assistance and to legitimize the exercise. If you're a beginner, this means
paper trading with a futures professional with whom you can speak personally.
Learning is easier and faster and the relationship that you build can continue should you decide to trade for real.
