LEARN FUTURES TRADING
MODULE 3 – Intermediate
Lesson 1: Position Size
All Futures contracts have a minimum price fluctuation which is set by the exchange and vary by contract instrument.
In this lesson, we will run through a step-by-step guide that you can follow to help you manage risk, position sizing and ultimately maintain your profitability. Hence in this lesson, we teach you how to determine risk and stop size. You will learn how to calculate position size based on the instrument of your choice.
Lesson 2: Consistency in Trading
What is consistency in trading and how do you find it? This powerful lesson is centered around one of the most critical topics in trading – consistency!
Based on a Futures case study we will show you how consistency in trading will allow you to reach your specific income and wealth goals, step by step. You will learn how to do milestone planning and have specific Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in place to objectively evaluate your trading results. This way you learn how to slowly scale up your business and gain confidence in your own trading.
Lesson 3: Risk Recognition
While novice traders tend to think about how much money they can make, those with skills know it’s much more important to focus on what they could potentially lose. There is a risk in every trade you take, but as long as you can measure risk, you can manage it.
This lesson covers the whole spectrum of possible risk scenarios. To reduce your risk to an absolute minimum, we will highlight various risk scenarios that go beyond your control. However, if we are aware and understand these scenarios, we can further mitigate our risk.
Part of this lesson is to understand what a professional trader call “Gap Risk.” Learn the fundamental concepts and dimensions on how to mitigate the risk of gaps in the Futures market and how to take advantage of gaps using our Supply and Demand strategy.
Lesson 4: Setting up an Income & Wealth workspace
After this lesson, you will never miss out on Futures trades again. We will show how to organize your watchlist for it to be easily accessible and straightforward to update. You will be able to effortlessly place and manage your Futures trades regardless of your whereabouts.
Moreover, it is imperative to trade instruments which suit your requirements and needs in the market. Therefore, we will also spend some time showing you how to create a watchlist of instruments which will suit your specific trading style: for daily-, weekly- and monthly income.
Lesson 5: Economic Calendar
Traders pay close attention to economic events by using an economic calendar. However, just having the release schedule for economic news and events is not enough.
This lesson we start by breaking down important economic events by country, period, and market impact. We will discuss how economic events can impact certain Futures markets and which markets are most affected by economic events.
We will guide you how to incorporate the economic calendar into your daily and weekly trading routine. We will showcase how to anticipate when major movements occur, then prepare and capitalize on that volatility by using Supply and Demand imbalances.
