This booklet ends where it began, with the statement that it is not our intention to suggest either that you should or should not participate in futures markets. Low margins, high leverage, frequently volatile prices, and the continuing needs of hedgers to manage the price uncertainties inherent in their business create opportunities to realize potentially substantial profits. But for each such opportunity, there is commensurate risk. Futures trading, as stated at the outset, is not for everyone.
Hopefully, the preceding pages have helped to provide a better understanding of the opportunities and the risks alike, as well as an understanding of what futures markets are, how they work, who uses them, alternative methods of participation and the vital economic function that futures markets perform.
In no way, it should be emphasized, should anything discussed herein be considered trading advice or recommendations. That should be provided by your broker or advisor. Similarly, your broker or advisor—as well as the exchanges where futures contracts are traded—are your best sources for additional, more detailed information about futures trading.
Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results and the risk of loss does exist in futures trading.
