8 Steps to Successful Futures Trading

My name is Ilan Levy-Mayer and I am the Vice President and Senior Futures Broker at Cannon Trading. I came up with the following personal observations after serving online traders worldwide for more than 21 years.
The following steps are guides to progress, and are not necessarily in sequential order. Some of them are always required, but each futures trader is different and will relate to these stages in their own ways. While attempting to learn and progress, one must keep in mind that futures trading strategies are risky and can involve significant losses.
1. Education
Hopefully if you are already trading you have completed your initial education: contract specs, trading hours, futures brokers, platforms, the opportunities as well as the risk and need to use risk capital in futures, and so on. Understanding this information is essential to good futures trading strategies. The second type of education is ongoing: learning about trading techniques, the evolution of futures markets, different trading tools, and more.
2. Find A System
I am definitely not advising you to go on the web and subscribe to a “black box” system (using buy/sell triggers if don’t know why they are being generated). What I am advising is developing a trading technique: a general set of rules and a trading concept. As you progress, you may want to put the different rules and indicators into a computerized system, but the most important factor is to have a focus and a plan. Don’t just wake up in the morning and trade “blank.”

“Cut Your Losses Short” Advice from an Ex Floor Broker

November 8th, 2021 Filed under Future Trading News, futures trading education, Trading Guide | Comment (0)

Dear Futures Trader,

Cut Your Losses Short – Quick but important advice by John Thorpe, Senior Broker and ex floor broker:

As Brokers we see too many self directed accounts under stress because losses are allowed to run.
I am not quite sure what the logic is, or even if there is logic attached to the decision to hang on to losing trade Ideas, and many times doubling up or even tripling up on the losing position. Invariably, when there is no more money left, the client is forced out only to see the market finally turn.
One of the traders Jack D. Schwager interviewed for his first Market Wizards book had this quote and a dose of reality.
I tend to cut bad trades as soon as possible, forget them, and then move on to new opportunities. The elements of good trading are: (1) cutting losses, (2) cutting losses, and (3) cutting losses. If you follow these three rules, you may have a chance. – Ed Seykota

3. Survival
This is the key! Do what you need to do in order to survive this brutal business and give yourself the chance of being here down the road with more experience and a better chance of success. Survival is probably the biggest key for beginning traders. There is a saying in this business: “live to trade another day.” It is so true!

1. Market Commentary

Many clients new and veteran have asked me in the past for different resources as far as day-trading education so I wanted to share a few pointers from my colleagues at Naturus.com about day-trading in general and day-trading futures in specific.
This ain’t rocket science. But it ain’t easy either.
Day-trading is just the process of buying and selling a futures contract within the same session.
It sounds pretty simple. If you buy and the price goes up you make money. Buy low, sell high (or sell high and buy low) and go fishing.
But knowing how it is done is not remotely close to knowing how to do it.
Learning to trade is a bit like learning to play the piano. You can’t learn by reading about it, or by watching somebody else do it, any more than you can lose weight by watching work-out videos.
You have to do it yourself, which means spending time – lots of time – in front of the screen, trading and analyzing. Experience isn’t just the best teacher; it is the only teacher.
The problem is that you can get hurt while you are learning. When you risk your money in the market, the guys taking the other side of your trade are much more experienced and much more skillful. They are pros, and there is no minor league where you can learn without getting hurt. Read the rest of this entry »
