First, let me tell you a bit of why futures are so important to our overall economy and then we can discuss some of the math of making money. And then we’ll talk about the Best Business Ever.
From the Dirt to a T-Shirt
Have you heard the term Futures Trading before? Or did you even know that it impacts a huge portion of our economy? Futures trading introduces a calming effect on market prices. This short story will help you understand the stabilizing effect of futures trading and how it helps all aspects of our economy. And not just the American Economy. Let’s pick on one small part of our economy. Cotton. A homegrown product.
Why would you be concerned with the price of cotton? Let me show you how this simple crop affects so many people in different ways. From the farmer to the major brand Clothing Store. Follow the path of this plant from the time it goes into the ground until it ends up on the shelf of a store where you pay your hard-earned money to take it home with you.
From the ground to the shirt on your back, the entire process takes time and money. Time and farmland, and fertilizer, and fuel to harvest and haul the raw material to the processing/manufacturing plants. From there, the cotton fabric is dyed, cut, sewn, and labeled.
Trucks using fuel and public highways haul the clothing to a store where more energy is used to heat and cool and light the store for your shopping pleasure.
The normal ebb and flow of commerce can not be regulated by any one industry or Government. Commerce and Business it is too big. Too complex and too many moving parts and too many variables.
The pictures you see represent real estate, agriculture, oil, manufacturing, the energy market, and public transportation. And, many more industries. This list is before we even get a cotton shirt to the shelf in your local store and calculate the proper price and advertising costs.
How can you as a retail supplier co-ordinate all these industries just to get a cotton t-shirt on the shelf? Much less, all the other items for sale on Amazon or Wal-Mart. Who could possibly make all these things come together at the right place and the right time, and the right price?
I skipped over the trucking industry and the oil/fuel suppliers, and the tire manufactures, and the construction industry that will build the store, and the transportation industry that will build a road for the trucks and the customer. I can go on and on.
But I think you see how it ties together. Who will fund these industries and who will provide the raw material and the technology for each and every segment? Who will provide the loans to fund each endeavor?
Each and every segment and each industry in this story requires a capital investment of one sort or another. It requires extensive planning, and delivery schedules, and fuel, and trucking schedules, and power for the lights in the store. Each segment must plan ahead to control the cost of the delivery product or service.
In order to calculate the cost of spinning and weaving the cotton fabric after you plant and harvest the cotton, you have to plan into the future and see what will my future cost be for each item. What will I pay for electricity, what will I pay for diesel fuel in my delivery trucks? and so on and so on; until you sell the product and receive the price you need to start over and do the same thing again.
Let’s cut to the chase. In order to make a product, you must have a market. Someone to buy that product. They will want to know “how much” before they buy a huge wholesale lot. They can then speculate for profit by buying low and selling high.
Would you order a shirt and still buy it if the price doubles before they ship it?
Guess what, the oil you use for fuel, the electricity you use, the cotton farmers also use these commodities and want to ensure a good supply at a fair price. Before they even plant a crop, they calculate the success of a harvest and try to have their harvest sold before they plant it. They try to reach into the future to ensure their success. They need a stable and reliable supply just like the manufacture and the retailer.
When you purchase a contract for an indexed product such as the S&P 500 you are showing the market what the price can or should be. You won’t take possession of a commodity since you contract for difference, but your participation in the market will indicate demand and supply pressures and therefore help to predict future prices.
As you can see, we picked on one product, cotton. And you can see how many other industries are affected by this one commodity. How they interact and depend on each other. As you blend and combine all these industries, you see how price agreements can help to forecast supply levels and pricing.
That, in a nutshell, is the futures market. People at an auction such as the S&P500 index are bidding on the price of fuel, the price of steel and fertilizer, the price of cotton; setting a price beforehand. And as a cotton producer or manufacturer, you can plan your manufacturing and distribution processes from the dirt to the shelf.
Trading the S&P500 futures will not involve contracts that last months and months. The way we train you, you will make your purchase and sell your contracts at a set price. The price is dictated by risk analysis and money management. When you enter a trade, you may have that trade fill in 5 min or 5 hours, but at the end of the trading day, we suggest you get out of the market and wait for it to reopen.
We train you to take fewer trades and make more money. I know you think I misspoke, but no I did not. Less Trades equals More Money.
Also, with the right money management and risk ratios, you only need to win 48% of your trades to make a butt load of money. Sound interesting? Let’s Talk. Let’s Talk about 48%
