Hi everyone! I've benefited from gold and silver prices rise through mining stocks trading but i'd like to slowly involve myself with future trading. First of all, from what i've understood, spread trading is the safest starting point. Am i right ? I've read somewhere that spreads in metals are expressed in the opposite way spread for other products are. Example of what i've read: "Buy JAN/DEC" would mean long DEC and short JAN for a bear spread in gold and would mean long JAN and short DEC for a bull spread in corn. Is this right ? (Is this also a standard or do brokers have different "codes"?) Also if you have some resources (books, website) on futures and spread trading that you like, please feel welcome to share these Many thx in advance.
