Why Trade Futures

Why Should I Learn to Trade Futures
Many students tell us that their main impediment to trading the market is time. When the traditional stock market is open, they’re working a job or going to school. It’s difficult to trade when you’re punching a time clock and stuck sitting in a classroom.

But imagine the great things you might be able to accomplish if that obstacle was removed?
That’s where the futures market can be a possible choice.

When trade the futures market, you aren’t governed by the old clock on the wall. That’s because the futures market is open nearly 24 hours each day.

It’s all about time and flexibility
So it doesn’t matter if you get home after traditional market hours, there are plenty of opportunities to made trades.
It doesn’t matter if you prefer to work late and want to trade in the middle of the night. You can do it!

What if you’re an early riser? Same scenario. There will almost always be an open market with trading opportunities.
When you trade futures, you’ll see how it’s all about flexibility

Trading the futures market is slightly different than the traditional stock market. That’s true. However, it isn’t complicated, offers more trading opportunities and is incredibly flexible. In fact, you can trade the futures market almost 24 hours each day.

How’s that for flexibility?

So, when you’re learning how to trade the market in pursuit of your personal financial goals, doesn’t it make sense to consider futures trading?

You won’t be boxed in by traditional trading hours. You won’t be an emotional wreck when the market is open and you are unable to watch your trades during the day – helpless to jump out if something goes wrong or watching potential profits fly away when you’re unable to get in!

You don’t need a giant account
Most students don’t have access to a huge trading account, especially when they’re just getting started. That makes futures trading a viable option, since you can typically get started with a smaller account. You will need money to get started – just not the deep, deep pockets required by more traditional strategies.

If you have put off the decision to trade the market because of a puny trading fund, you should take a look at the futures market. These positions require less up-front cash and the margins are generally more affordable than traditional stock options. This allows you to trade with a smaller account.

The Futures Advantage
There is no pattern day trading rule with futures. Unless you have a larger account, you are limited in the number of option trades you can conduct. However, there is no restriction for account size in order to day trade for income in the futures market.

Leverage means increased buying power. Additional leverage allows you to trade and invest with a smaller account size. And since you have more power, you can protect your portfolio by using futures to hedge at a lower cost.

Because you’re on a more level playing field, there is less price manipulation and fewer games when placing an order. You don’t need to worry as much about the market maker becoming a mess maker.

Why Trade Futures
Brandon Wendell is the host of three premium classes hosted by Wealth Builders HQ. These are classes that are designed to help you learn how to make money by trading futures. Here is a quick look at each class.

Brandon`s Classes

Emini Think Tank Logo

This is the ultimate classroom and gathering spot for aspiring futures traders! The group meets with Brandon Wendell three times each week in a live setting.

These non-funded trades are tracked and recorded for full transparency. The success rate is pretty good, too. Of the 24 positions entered in January 2022, 20 of them were winners (an 83.3% success rate) and produced an average profit of $994.13. (Don’t expect to get that every month … sometimes it’s more and sometimes it’s less … .but the numbers are there each month.)

Each live class is recorded and stored in your member’s area for future use. It’s a great way to go back and review material and clarify information you heard in class. Archived material is typically kept on file for a month. There are also 20 bonus videos included that cover additional strategies and techniques that can make you a better trader.

There are dozens of bonus worksheets, templates and calculators to use, too. The E-mini Think Tank is the ultimate huddle for students who are serious about students who want to learn how to trade futures.

SPx Cash Flow Secret

Let Brandon teach you how to pack a week’s worth of high-stress trading into about six low-stress hours a week with his ground-breaking technique. It’s called his “Zero Days to Expiration” strategy and it involves trading opportunities that expire at the end of the trading day. Brandon teaches students how to cut down on the risk by using an index that limits exposure and allows you to capture most of the Beta evaporation on the position.

Not sure how to trade spreads? That’s OK, because Brandon has recorded a step-by-step set of video instructions that makes it easy to follow along and learn. From there it’s a matter of following the rules. You can even sign up to receive a text alert when the you need to take action.

Wealth With Spreads Logo

This class is devoted to using non-direction spread trades with futures. Each week you will receive a video, along with a printable PDF, that details possible spread trades that are on the horizon. This gives you an opportunity to watch the position and analyze them. Once the entities begin to move, you will receive a text message that alerts you. For example, a recent text said: “NGH22 from1/30 is moving toward the target.” That’s exactly the sort of news you need to know!

Wealth With Spreads comes with educational videos that will further explain the process and enhance your understanding of how the routine works. Brandon even hosts a live class and it is archived in the member’s area.
