What should I know about futures trading for beginners?
Futures are contracts to buy or sell a specific asset at a particular price on a particular date in the future. Futures contracts are standardized, which means they are traded on exchanges and have fixed terms and conditions.

When you trade, you’re essentially making a bet on the market’s direction. If you think the market will go up, you can buy futures contracts; if you think the market is going to go down, you can sell futures contracts.
There are two main types of trading: long-term and short-term. Long-term futures traders typically hold their positions for months or even years, while short-term traders hold for days or weeks.
