How I Got Started Trading Futures: My path to learn trading is summarized in this piece of writing.
(Sample Commodity Futures Trading Articles)
"I've been watching financial markets with varying degrees of interest for 20 years on and off. I remember the economic woes of the late 80's. I remember the economic wows of the late 90's and early 2000's as well as the bursting of that bubble. I was active in the markets before, during, and after the crash of 2008. All in all, up until now, I've witnessed 3 major market downs, and two major market ups. I vividly remember gold being below $200/oz and Crude Oil in the 'teens. I'm not an expert trader yet, but I'm no greenhorn.
I first became aware of financial markets when I was around 12 years old and my mother and father decided to buy my younger brother and I some mutual funds as a long-term investment. At the time, I had no idea what a mutual fund was, so I asked my father. My dad told me it was when a bunch of people put their money together and then someone in charge of the money bought and sold stocks to make profit on price fluctuations. Of course, I didn't know what a stock was either. Guess what I asked my dad next!
Anyways, at the time, my dad received a subscription to a newspaper named "The Financial Post". The Financial Post had a pretty complete stock & commodity listings section. Once we had our mutual funds, I looked them up in every Saturday's newspaper edition and carefully plotted a price chart for them in a binder I had. As the months went by there were fluctuations and I got bored, as you'd expect a 12 year old tracking 2 mutual funds would. Eventually, I decided to learn more about these "stocks" that my dad had told me about. So instead of charting the mutual funds in my binder, I started charting a handful of stocks that had cool names. I particularly remember one called "Tomahawk Resource" because I was really into axes, bows and arrows, and spears and all that stuff. So it was through these seemingly casual day-to-day events that I learned what the financial markets were about. However, I was still unaware of the full potential that existed within them. ..."
That was a sample of an article I wrote just to describe how I got started in the world of finance. The complete article is in the article archives below if you'd like to read it, and others.
