Welcome to the Futures
....online trading does not have to be a four-letter word
Imagine you see a hot pair of shoes in one of the IG stores you follow. Then you DM the seller and tell them that you are getting paid on the 30th and you'd like them to reserve that pair for you, you'll get it on payday.
The seller knows that you might find that same pair somewhere else (perhaps even cheaper), or lose interest in the shoe altogether, so they tell you that you have to promise to buy it from them, at that price, and on that date.
And you, knowing they may be tempted to raise the prices later (since many people are inquiring), demand that they too have to promise to sell it to you, at that same price, on that date.
You shake on it. And it's legally binding.
Welcome to the world of Futures trading
It is a micro-contract you get into that demands that you buy or sell a specific good, at a specific price, on a specific future date.
It is remarkably different from Forex trading and most notably, it is heavily regulated so it is protected from the kind of shadiness associated with a lot of the forex trading you see on the streets.
Futures banks on the future changes in market price of goods (assets).
We know you've bumped into the scammers and the 'ask me how' guys who spam comments on Facebook.
You know, the guys who say that all you have to do is invest Ksh. 1,500 and start making Ksh. 15,000 the next day on Forex.
The ones who send dusty, photoshopped images of supposed 'returns' to get you parting with your hard-earned cash.
They leave a bad taste in your mouth, don't they? And suddenly 'trading' has turned into a four-letter-word much like GNLD. You don't even want to hear about it. And that's cool.
in typical Village2nation fashion, we are bringing you a FREE Info-session with only the best expert we could find on this subject.
So… you’re about to thank us for this …
