Since 2011 VancityTrader has traded in the Emini Futures Markets.
Ever been interested in the stock market and wondered what it was all about? Over 7 years ago we had the exact same feelings and decided to learn how trade in the Futures Markets.
A psychological battle across the world boiled up into numbers, charts patterns, human emotion, skill and probabilities. Through trial and error (mostly error) we never gave up on the markets and expanded his knowledge everyday. VCT took the path that most did, funded multiple accounts and blew them all out.
We have taken the time to thoroughly understand and dissect the futures trading world. What started as a basic understanding quickly lead to a trip to Wall Street in 2012, where I was offered a position to train with a proprietary trading desk in New York City.
We can never stop learning about the markets or what we need to do to gain an edge.
Futures trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
