FAQ

What Is Futures Trading?

Futures trading differs from many other venues in that there is no actual equity position. In effect, trading is based on the right to the future price of an instrument or commodity. This affords much greater leverage than would be found in trading equities, for instance. This leverage can also work against traders, too, but it does allow us to control a good deal of market value with a relatively small trading account. We have found that futures trading with a solid, robust mechanical system gives traders the best shot at success in the shortest period of time with an impressive level of risk control.

Why Trade Futures?

Every trader has their own “comfort zone” in the markets they’ve been trading for years and sometimes it’s hard to get them to take a look at anything else. But once many traders give futures a serious try, most people quickly see the numerous trading advantages they offer. Like the smooth and consistent volatility, the very small capital requirement, the very tight spreads, the minimal slippage and the substantial tax break savings available, just to name a few. Consider the alternatives and futures become attractive in a hurry. Equities require a large amount of capital, offer virtually no leverage, require a lot of research, are highly sensitive to market news and baseless rumors and many traders find they just can’t trust the data they have to work with. Options, with their Calls and Puts and Vertical Spreads and Naked Leaps and Iron Condors are just too complicated for many traders to consistently succeed. It takes a while just to learn and understand the lingo. Plus, Options trading adds a third element to trading that many traders find undesirable: a time limit. A trade might work just fine but not in the required time frame and, oops sorry, you lose. It’s why futures trading has been called “the most successful market product ever offered in the history of the financial industry”.

Do you use stops? How much?

At Felton Trading, we believe strongly in very tight stops. Without stops, there is no risk control and, without risk control, there is no lasting success. Since the method itself often pinpoints the exact minute and second that the market is going to make a move. Calculated stops are used in all markets. We control and cut losses on wrong-sided trades as quickly as possible. In addition, we use a powerful and unique approach to capture larger market moves with a special trailing stop technique that is only shown in Felton Trading.

What are the advantages of having a Signal Room compared to a Trading Room?

Virtually no learning curve! With warnings that we provide, you will have time enough to put the trade and mimic the entry. You will also discover that we will show you only results that comes using forward testing (historical LIVE simulation).

What steps should I take before beginning my live trading?

Before placing your first real money trade, you should ALWAYS begin in simulation with a good and highly realistic simulation platform. Never risk your real trading capital if our signals mastery is not there yet. Today’s modern trading simulators are incredibly robust and versatile. Although they cannot simulate the emotional high (or low) that you might experience from a real money trade, they offer the trader the opportunity to experience everything else that they will encounter when trading for real. Spend as much time in simulation as you need in order to achieve consistent winning days with very few mistakes. Always let your profits dictate how many contracts you will place on your trades. Never risk more money in a trade than you can comfortably afford to lose! If your trading account is slipping, stop trading real money and go back to simulation until your confidence and ability are rock-solid. Remember, protecting your trading account is everything. First learn to survive – then learn to thrive!
