    Is this a joke? Futures contracts come in $100,000 quantities traded by professionals. You don’t have the capital or anything like the infrastructure to make this work. You will lose every penny plus more that you put into it.

    Futures trading involves derivatives, or leverage. The premium for the put or call is what you pay, for the right to buy or sell $100,000 of currency or equivalent.

    Derivatives mean that you can lose many times what you put in – and be able to make many times what you put in as well. So the risk reward is much higher than straight trading of stock or currency.

    You normally need about $25,000 or more to be able to trade, depending on your broker’s margin requirements.

    If a trade turns against you, you may have a “margin call”, which is a request to put in more money to maintain your equity, or the broker has the right to sell your position at market, meaning that you will have a huge loss.
