Trade Futures with CFI
What is Futures?
The difference between futures and options lies in the obligation which is the case for futures while for options, the right exists but not the obligation.
- Futures contracts are leveraged products and allow for buying or selling at a fraction of the contract value, making them appealing as trading products. On the other hand, the leverage factor can magnify gains and losses.
- Margins: As mentioned above, margins on futures contracts are predetermined by the exchange and account for many factors with the main one being volatility. Most of the time, they represent a relatively small fraction of the value of the contract
