Trading futures, commodities and currencies is not suitable for everyone, especially, those individuals who are risk adverse. Furthermore, it is possible to lose a substantial amount of money in a short period of time. Note: a loss can exceed the amount deposited in a trading account. Thus, it is recommended that before an individual open a futures, commodity or currency trading account that he/she completely understand the nuances of trading.
