  1. Clay, youโ€™re simply great! Thank you so very much for your hard work to help people. I have been waiting for this third class since you released the second one. Waiting for more! May God richly bless your life.

  2. I started with gold micros their phenomenal 1 gold micro = 1/10th the size and power of a Full Future, 1 dollar move in gold with 1 full contract = $100 in value, in a gold micro it's only $10 in value, in crude 1 dollar with 1 full contract = $1000 In value, Nat gas = $10,000 value per dollar per full contract. In my brokerage the cash requirement for one full gold future is $3,740 and you have exposure to aprox 150k in gold, in a micro it's only 374 and about 15k exposure, so great advise to use micros ! It would be cool to see a trade , thanks a million I'm fascinated by the futures market

  3. Awesome man Iโ€™m definitely moving into futures Iโ€™m giving it 19 months of study and practice then Iโ€™ll start trading on my two days of Iโ€™m thinking micros and then maybe oil if I can turn a small profit

  4. I'm more confused about futures after watching these videos, but maybe I'm the idiot. edit: My bad, I thought options and futures were the same thing, apparently they are not.

  5. Thanks Clay! This really helped me make the migration from options to futures on my index trades and take advantage of smaller spreads, higher liquidity and stop losses. All three are major game-changers for me!! . Q: When do we need to worry about expiration of contracts? For example, I now have Dec. ES, but Dec. will expire soon. When do I know to move this contract and to which month? Should I always choose the next closest month? Thanks again.

  6. So when you BUY a contract there is no money taken from your deposit, you just need to have a certain amount available as a margin?

  7. Really good lectures – thanks for doing these! How many parts will there be in this Futures Trading class?
    Any idea of the ETA of Part 4? ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚
