Yesterday, we talked about my latest weekly idea for the S&P 500 (ES) futures market.

With the bounce yesterday afternoon and the follow-through move to the upside today, that idea is almost in play.

However, I realize that many of my readers are new to the futures markets.

So, if you want to participate in this opportunity, you’re first going to need to learn the ins and outs of the craft.

You also need to know how to avoid making the mistakes that have caused many people to lose money.

Read on to learn more about how to build a solid strategy with futures trading…

What Are Futures?

A futures contract is a contract that two entities agree upon to be executed at a future time. 

Many things can happen before the transaction is completed, even if the contract continues to run at a constant pace until the execution date.

However, between the execution and settlement of the contract, traders are free to trade these futures contracts. How does that happen?

Well, traders buy and sell contracts through a broker. These brokers have online platforms that allow you to place trades and view price charts of the futures contract. 

You have the option to buy or sell futures contracts with a simple press of a button, and the platforms make it as easy as possible to navigate and monitor your trades.
