What are Futures Contracts?

A future is similar to an option, except that with futures, investors MUST exercise their right to purchase the underlying financial instrument or commodity (index, grain, cotton, pork bellies, etc... not stocks) at the settlement date. Hence it truly is a contract that obliges you to transact with another party. For this reason, the downside risk is basically unlimited because investors are obliged to fulfill their end of the transaction regardless of how market prices move. Entering into a futures agreement does not require that investors pay a premium; it is merely an agreement to transact at a later date. Because of this, it is important to sell the contract before the settlement date. That way, investors can avoid having a truckload of pork bellies delivered to their doorstep on the day of the settlement!

Why invest in futures?

With all the risk involved, you might wonder, Who buys futures? Although futures are not recommended for novice investors, futures are widely used by portfolio managers to both speculate and hedge. An investor needs a futures account in order to transact with this product.
Futures markets are als a place for people to reduce risk when making purchases. Risks are rduced because the prise is pre-set, terefore letting participants know how much they will need to buy or sell. This helps reduce the ultimate cost to the retail buyer because with less risk there is less of a chance that manufacurers will jack up prices to make up for profit losses in the cash market.

What is Hedging?

Hedging is a strategy used to offset risk. For example, a cereal manufacturer might fear that their ingredient costs will rise, so they will "hedge" their risk by purchasing a futures contract on grain. In this case, they uses the futures contract to lock in a price for grain today so that they is not stuck paying the higher prices later.

What is a CFD?

A Contract For Difference (or CFD) is a contract between two parties, buyer and seller, stipulating that the seller will pay to the buyer the difference between the current value of an asset and its value at contract time. (If the difference is negative, then the buyer pays instead to the seller.)

CFDs provide investors with the opportunity to take long or short positions. Unlike futures contracts, CFDs have no fixed expiry date or contract size.

What is a Short position?

Going short (Seling) is a Bearish strategy. Investor "sell short" when they have anticipation of a downturn in price. Making this move allows the investor to benefit from a decline.

What is a Long position?

Going long (Buying) is a Bullish strategy. Long positions are taken when a trader buys a currency at a low price in anticipation of selling it later for more.

Why should you hold a position?

You hold a position when the three following criteria are met:

1- A sufficient profit is realized from the position.
2- Re-set stop loss order is triggered.
3- A better position emerges and the trader needs to liquidate 
     funds to take advantage of that.

What are Stocks?

When most people think of investing, the first thing that comes to their mind is buying a stock. A share of stock, or equity reflects a share of ownership in a company.
The price of a company's stock reflects the company's current valuation and how investors expect the company to do in the future. Stock prices are also affected by changes in inflationary risk and the level of prevailing interest rates.

For example, if XYZ company has 100 shares outstanding and you own five shares, you own five percent of the company.
