Futures market at the moment is completely different from what it was in the nineteenth century. The futures market as we know it today is globally manufactured goods also includes financial and currencies and treasury bonds and agricultural products. While speculation is based on futures contracts, the actual item is not what it is speculative, but the value of the goods traded contract. Each order includes contract buyer and seller. The following example will explain how to speculation in futures: Farms agreed to deliver 1,000 bushels of corn to the baker at $ 5 a bushel.Futures accounts are settled on a daily basis. Using the above example, this is the way to achieve the return of the settlement of futures contracts: If the futures price of corn is still at $ 4, the farm will have a $ 1,000 profit on the contract term baker will lose the same amount. Nevertheless, the baker can now buy corn on the open market at $ 4 per bushel - less than $ 1,000 of the original contract price, and therefore, the amount lost in the contract are settled price of corn, which is cheaper. Also, the farmer must sell corn on the open market at $ 4 a bushel, or less than the price at which waited when writing the contract term, but the profit achieved by the contract term is what will make the difference and compensated in this regard. Speculators win on a daily basis from the vagaries of the futures markets by choosing either purchase from the seller (buy to sell me) or the buyer (buy buying). Forex market has characteristics make it superior to the futures markets. Forex is the largest financial market in the world. Also is hugely liquid market as stop orders can be implemented more easily with a minimum of slipping what price can be found in other markets.
