Hi everyone,


I have recently taken an interest in Futures trading thanks to an internship at an exchange I had, and would like to further increase my knowledge on the subject and perhaps trade futures myself in the future.


I was wondering if anyone could give their advice as to where to find professional training in the futures market or trading with futures. It can be either online or at an institute, I don't mind


As I do not have much trading experience overall, would you suggest I first take a course in FOREX training first?


I haven't been able to find much online, as not many places that I have looked at do courses in futures, is there a particular reason for this?


Thanks in advance!

About training I don't know, open a demo account and practice while reading and learning.

Thanks very much!!

your best lessons will come from trading the demo account, running your ideas and seeing the results. understand money management strategies and find the brokerage thats right for you, commission/no commission, no commission is not necessarily better because the spread can be a lot worse, some offer hedging, others offer no slippage guarantee, or stop loss guarantees, or not losing more than your initial deposit (gcitrading) others offer that only on accounts up to 50K... try their demo platforms, get lots of real time trading experience with demo accounts. dont use too many indicators, good luck :)
