Is it worth trading Futures to make money? Better than stocks?

John answers:

The secret with futures is reading the technical patterns correctly, fully understanding the geopolitical situations, current events and the farmers almanac helps.

I personally trade futures and only hold them for a few days and I only spend about 10% of my cash in my account on each trade. Margin calls is what zero’s out every rookies account. Majority of my trades are flips (few minutes/hours) or swing trades.

I first started trading stocks when I was 13 years old. It was a great learning lesson, kind of like baby steps. After stocks you move on and becoming more fearless in other markets; bonds, options then futures. Futures is the most difficult to understand of all the markets. Lately, I have learned how to maximize profits in the option and futures markets. Stocks taught me to buy and hold, options and futures taught me how to lock and drop. Sell winners quick, and drop losers even quicker. You never want to wait around hoping.

How do you know how much money you make from stocks?

i am trying to buy a stock and i am a complete newb.
i looked at google finance and on some businesses it said the stocks were like $250 today. well isnt it possible to buy a stock for like 1000 right now if i wanted? or can i only buy it for 250?

if i get a stock can i buy one at whatever price i want? and what is a good amount of money to spend?

John answers:

If you look at the price of the stock that is how much it is currently trading for. For example Yahoo stock closed at $16.61 today and this is how much it costs per share (the exact price will differ now that the market is closed and it could open at a higher or lower price tomorrow morning). You can buy 1 share of this, or you can buy 1,000 shares of it depending on how much you have and want to put into it.

There is no good or bad price without looking at the individual stock. Some stocks are expensive at $5 while others are cheap at $100. It all depends on the particular stock.

William asks…

How do people make money with stocks and are mutual funds better than stocks.?

John answers:

2 ways to make money. First if you buy the shares at 10 dollars and they jump in price to 13 you made 3 dollars per share. The second way is when you own shares say of GM and they decide to pay a dividend of 1 dollar per share. You would receive a dollar for every share you own. Mutuals are better in general for novice investors do to investing in many companies into one fund which makes your risk less. Also they pool many people together to invest which makes expenses much less do to more people sharing the expense. If you interested in funds. Vanguard is a great way to begin. They have some very nice funds and their expense ratios are the best around.
