    Hello from the far away Athens City, Greece.

    I think that you start very wrong your Adventure in the Financial Markets.

    Seems that you had put in your Mind and into your Psychology first, the Word Profit.

    It is Wrong that.

    You must put the Word Loss.

    How much Loss can you afford from your Trade/s and for each Trade separate ?

    You have think that ?

    Also do you have create Trading Strategy/ies for your Trade/s ?

    Meaning what you will do if happen that or something else, in your Trade/s ?

    How you will act ?

    Also do you know some Fundamentals for the Futures that you want to Trade ?

    For example suppose that you want to trade the CBOT Wheat.

    Do you know Informations about CBOT Wheat ?

    Which are the Fundamentals for this Product, for example, not only for U.S.A but all the Globe ?

    So, the best that you have to do is, to try to study some things before to make any move.

    200000 USD listen a lot of Money to my Ears.

    You must keep your Capital first.

    You are very young to start bad and with huge losses.

    Kind Regards,

    George Kanellopoulos.

    Exist here a huge anger for the situation that we have.

    An anger to Politicians that befool so many Years the People.

    Also the People here want,

    People that stolen Public Money to go to the Jail.

    (I do not believe that will happen that soon by my Side.)

    Exist right now, a not so clear Situation from the Side of the Economic Measures.

    Have announce many Measures now and have keep Measures for the Future that we do not know them.

    Exist big raise in some Taxes and caught in People Salaries.

    All these Measures i do not know how People can afford it.

    By my Side i blame a huge EU for that.

    I have the strong believe, that Greece must exist EU and from Euro.

    But the Guys in EU do not want that.

    I think that have in the deep of their Minds, to go beyond and to create a possibly Federal Union.

    Also in their Minds, want that Federal Union, for to compete U.S.A.

    Until now, i do not believe that any other Nation can compete U.S.A.

    The most important Advantage that have U.S.A are the Grains Exports.

    If U.S.A does not Export Grains, the World will starve.

    Europeans have not to eat and want to create Federal Union to compete U.S.A !

    From one Point the Situation here is Funny with such Ideas...

    Kind Regards,

    George Kanellopoulos.
  9. Kid, dont listen to the ones who tell you you can't trade with 200$. You wont trade REAL futures with 200$ though. FXpro will take the other side of you trade or will hedge his book of 0.1 orther positions by trading futures for themselves. So you must have an account outside the US I guess. And what you are trading must be CFDs or some fuck top thing like that (nothing wrong with that).
    You will most likely lose your 200$ but it's worth it if you learn. Now most of us can't help because futures on "low cap" is not a statement that makes a lot of sense to futures traders. Do you have a list of stocks available or do you want to trade commodities like gold and oil?

    Yes, the US has a balance of trade surplus in agriculture of $3B. But other countries (Hungary, Brazil, former USSR states, Canada, Australia) are big producers of grain as well.

    Good luck and hope things get better in Greece.
