Welcome new Ag traders!

Discussion in 'Commodity Futures' started by youngtrader, Nov 10, 2009.

  1. After seeing about 12 new threads over the past few days it seems like a bunch of you would like to try to be grain traders and grain spreaders.

    After seeing a lot of the threads are noobie questions such as "will I get corn shipped to me if I forget to close the contract on expiration" or the classic "im having trouble executing a corn spread" or who could forget the "which is the best grain spread to trade right now?"

    I just wanted to say that you will all get totally owned in these markets!

    Its obvious none of you know what the hell your talking about and none of you have any grasp on the fundamentals and market mechanics of the agricultural sector.

    Sorry for being an asshole but if you seriously want to try to make a living trading these contracts then I suggest you look somewhere else instead of posting on ET.

    Good Luck! (your going to need it)

    You have to start somewhere, and ET can be a good resource for new traders.

    i welcome you to come trade grains. but do your homework.

    1. look for books on grains, buy them. read them. understand them. Grains are hard to find information about but try and find it, there are some gems out there.

    2. understand the product. do you know what you are trading?

    3. People here will help you, but do not ask dumb questions. (have you at least gone though the forum and read all the threads?)

    get in there and trade them. but don't ask people to hold your hand. it will just hinder your abilities to trade any products down the road.
