On this free course, I have tried to put together some basic information about futures contracts trading, for traders who are interested on planing to make a step in to this world of trading, regardless the trading experience.

Here you will learn the basics of futures contracts and how you can start trading.

There are some valuable information on this course, because you can get an overview about who are the market participants and why they are using futures trading. You will learn about the roles of hedge funds, speculators, market makers or the role of other trading entities, like agricultural companies. Why an agricultural company is an important part of trading futures contracts.

Understanding the role of market participants should give you a perspective on how and why the markets are moving the way they are.

Please note that there is no trading strategies involved in this course. This course is just providing an insight over the futures contracts trading, for traders interested in futures trading.

I hope you will find helpful this free course, so that you can get a positive edge to your trading plans. If there are any questions, please feel free to write me.

I have taken contact with the stock market 15 years ago in my first year of college. I had no clue of what i was doing, but it was like an exam for one year and I was supposed to invest and make some profit.

The same year, in 2007, I took some courses for the Forex market and I was shocked that I was not able to understand anything, but after 6 months it was a little clear about all those Head & Shoulders, double bottom, and tops, so I have started to trade real money....made profit like 30% in 2 weeks and then lost all in 2 days... No one was teaching anything in those days about trading psychology or mindset.

One year later, 2008 i have started to work for the investment firm, CapitalGroup in Bucharest, as a broker.

All my career I have searched for wonder indicators, holly grail in trading, and trading gurus, only to reach the conclusion that retail indicators like Moving Averages or RSI, are not the ones suitable for me.

My contact with Orderflow is only 4 years, but this changed my trading perspective since this approach, is made by professional traders at prop firms, institutions, banks...etc...

I have started developing  my own trading indicators since I was not able to find complex indicators for MT4 or MT5 similar with those from futures trading platforms.

This is how I have started the advancedtradingtools company.

My Moto: Never stop learning, never stop growing!

Good luck to you all!
