If you ask yourself, what is the purpose of studying futures? I think everyone's answers should be surprisingly different: for the sake of being small and broad, for the sake of wealth.
However, since I started my career, I have not seen a few investors who have completed their financial freedom, but have witnessed many investors who broke their positions. A while ago, the wave of cotton fell sharply. I heard from a friend of a futures company that more than 80 of his more than 100 customers broke their positions, which were all made of cotton. Although I don't work in a futures company, as an employee of only a few education and training institutions in the futures industry, I also deeply feel the heavy results brought by these investors' weak understanding of risk prevention.
All right, let's get down to business.
I believe many people have made difficulties when they first came into contact with futures. How to start studying futures is the aspiration of most white people, including me who just started studying a few years ago.
There are about two categories of newcomers here:
I experience in trading financial derivatives such as stocks and foreign exchange
Second, pure white (not exposed to the financial derivatives market)
Here, I will briefly talk about the reasons why these two kinds of people are losing money in the market.
The first one is because I have done stock trading, I think I have a certain knowledge of buying and selling, and I think that futures are just like this. As a result, after entering the market, the market teaches him to be a man in minutes (the real situation, several friends I know here say so. )
The second kind is authentic white paper. If you don't know anything, you will know that you have sold up and bought down, but you don't know anything else. If you ask him what soybean meal is, he may also know that it is a bean by-product. If you say PP, he may not know it. I don't mean that you should understand all kinds. Of course, there are experts who only look at technical indicators in pure technology schools, but how many? Since ancient times, commodity prices have fluctuated around this supply and demand, which has been mentioned in high school political economy, right?
So what is my initiative?
I think it's best to spend some time learning the fundamental knowledge when you first come into contact with futures, so that you won't be blind when you open an account and buy and sell (I've seen a blind man, maybe you earned a little at the beginning, but if you get it once or twice, can you get it all your life? Obviously not) Many people say, ah, what futures are gambling, you can do whatever else you want, that's not gambling, that's two-way trading. Unlike stocks, you can buy and sell in the futures market (even if you don't need the goods with this contract or you basically don't have the goods with this contract), because most of us come to the futures market with the purpose of speculation, that is, to earn the difference and make profits.
So how to study futures systematically? Let me briefly talk about some of my experiences and experiences.
I remember when I first learned about "futures", I was a freshman. At that time, I wanted to take the securities qualification certificate, so I also understood all kinds of financial derivatives markets. Of course, at that time, I only stayed to know what the concept of futures was, and there was no real outdated goods market, let alone any trading.
But I am still familiar with stocks, and I read a lot of books and looked up a lot of materials at that time. I also made stocks in my sophomore year (at that time, I used my father's account, which had mixed profits and losses, and it was also an antique. As a result, my mentality exploded because of the fuse mechanism for 16 years. ) In the end, the market was separated. After all, the student party had no source of income. If it was quilted, it would have no living expenses and suffer. Once in a while, I saw the spatial dynamics of learning long hair, which was about futures, so I clicked on it and found that futures are more sensitive than stocks, but they are more and more unpredictable. In fact, at this moment, I once started to get interested in it, and went to the school library to borrow a book about the fundamental knowledge of futures, and then I graduated and engaged in the futures education industry.
Of course, after talking so much nonsense, I haven't said my own initiative. Here are some initiatives for Xiaobai and friends who want to enter the market:
1. First of all, if you are a pure white man, you should read some books on the fundamentals of futures, and make a clear understanding of the fundamental elements of futures trading, such as rules, characteristics, functions, settlement system, etc. Otherwise, you don't know how to make profits and how to make losses. Of course, the tuition fees should be paid naturally, and this process is essential whether you give them to the market or to the master for further study.
2. I go to the next software on the Internet to imitate buying and selling (whether it is Wenhua Finance or a game master), and familiarize myself with the basic trading operation process. Of course, if you have knowledge of stocks, there are many K-line charts and moving average charts here, so you don't have to look at them specially, just like stocks. However, we should know that futures can be bought and sold in both directions, and we can also short while we are long.
3. When you feel that your roots are almost under control with the trading operation process, you can open an account with a futures company and start the firm operation. Of course, in the early stage, you are advised to operate with light warehouse and small funds, and the money put into the market should not affect your normal life. After all, investment is risky, so you should be cautious when entering the market (I have said this for several times, laughing and crying). Of course, this also means that you should start to learn to set up your own trading system (technical analysis or fundamental analysis).
4. After that, it is your own experience of buying and selling, that is, the so-called sense of disk. If you say this thing is useful, it still works in my opinion. My experience may not be helpful to you. Everyone's perception is different, just like the previous martial arts novels said: You can only express what you want, but you can't tell what you want.
As for the operation, my proposal is:
First, self-study, after a lot of reading and actual combat, summarizes the study. The defect of this method is that the demand costs a lot of time and money, but it may not be possible to learn the way to make a steady profit. After all, there are still many people losing money in the futures market. Second, after learning from reliable teachers, teachers can teach you effective methods, which can be directly applied to the firm offer, communicate with teachers in time when there is confusion in practice, and promote and control the correct methods faster to help buyers and sellers make profits in this market. The advantage of this method is to improve efficiency, and you can really learn the profit-making method.
In buying and selling, there is an applicable indicator for quick profit demand, and the buyer and seller can strictly follow the indicator prompts. The 60-minute pressure of soybean meal is at 2563 to separate the indicator signal. This is the position of admission empty order, and the support line is at 2497. It is a suitable position for admission with more than one order. If the buyer and seller strictly separate the indicator signal operation, this small increase of dozens of points of profits and the decline of more than 20 points of profits can be well grasped
Under normal circumstances, there are two key positions for doing more: 1 callback to find support to do more; 2. When the price reaches a new high and does more (the price breaks the pressure line upwards), the trend line and the band line are in an obvious rising state, and it is the time to do more on dips if the price returns to the left of the band line. His benefits are: doing it right, just putting more than one order on the support line, and having ideal profit space. If you make a mistake, you will stop when the price goes back below the trading line, and the loss will be very small.
Under normal circumstances, there are two key positions for shorting: 1. Rebound to find pressure and short on rallies; 2 When the price is short at a new low (when the price breaks down the support line), the trend line and the band long and short line are in a state of landing, and it is the time to short on rallies as long as the price rebounds to the left of the trading line. Its advantages are: if you do it right, just put the empty order on the pressure line, and have an ideal profit margin; if you do it wrong, you will stop the loss when the price returns to the trading line (that is to say, the price breaks through the pressure line upwards), and the loss is very small.
