From the Author
I am pleasantly surprised and gratified by the interest and sales of FUTURES 101. Too many people lose money when trading and the main reason may be ignorance of how the system works. And the dangers involved. I am not associated with any brokerage or anyone in the futures business other than as a client, and when I first traded commodities some years ago I could not find a beginners book that explained things comfortably to me. The very few available were too technical or too abrupt and left me confused or unsatisfied. Later after some years of trading with mixed results I remembered the difficulties encountered in the beginning and since I had learned a fair amount about trading by trial and error, I decided to write a short explanation booklet to benefit others. I also wanted to write it in a style that would not put the reader asleep. The more I wrote the more I found needed to be covered and the result was a full book that has found an international sales niche, much of it through referrals. In summary, it was fun to write and I hope it benefits those looking to understand futures trading.

Top Customer Reviews
1) ONLY for non-futures traders looking to understand the art of commodity trading,
2) illustrating step-by-step of when, what, who, and how of futures trading,
3) depicting how you can win or loss BIG from futures.
This book isn't:
1) an advice on how to WIN,
2) a tool on how to beat the system.
Since I am a bystander looking to investing in the futures, this is a great book to begin. A perfect Futures for Dummies.
I do find the typewriter look to the text annoying. Which is why it is only 4 stars.
And this is a book for someone knowing little or nothing about the futures or commodity markets. But it will get you up to speed very quickly and painlessly.
