Who are the losers in futures trading?

  1. Who are the losers in futures trading?

    We all know that there are winners in futures trading that consistently make good money. We also know that futures trading is a negative sum game when you consider trading costs. So while a couple people win the vast majority of people lose.

    I would imagine that the winners at futures trading are a small group of experienced traders and funds.

    So then who are the losers? Who is paying for the profits of the few that succeed? Retail traders? Hedgers? Someone else?

    Does it surprise you to learn that someone has written a book about this?
