Futures trading is a scary topic for some. I know because I was once terrified of the prospect of anything related to trading. In fact, I spend many years thinking that all trading was somehow rigged and that people could not possibly make money with it.
My name is Jeffrey Dobson and I am here to tell you that I spent years being wrong. Futures trading is not a rigged act that allows some people to make money while others simply fall by the wayside. It is not something that you should even be afraid of. It is however, a way that you can change the future of your financial situation if you know what you are doing. Notice that I said “if you know what you are doing”. You see, I had no idea what I was doing when I began but first, let me share with you my story and why I began trading in the first place.
Like others from my generation, I went to college directly after high school and obtained my Bachelor’s Degree. My degree is in accounting and although this is a good way to earn a decent living, I wanted more; again like others from my generation. Paying the mortgage and car payments each month and having money left over to raise our 2 children put a lot of stress on my wife and me. Although we both had reasonably good jobs, we were working ourselves into a frenzy trying to keep up. At just 35 years of age, I thought that I would never be able to retire. We were still years away from paying off our mortgage and it had gotten to the point that taking even a short vacation every year was simply not feasible because we just could not afford the extra expense.
I got very tired of working so hard and not having near enough to show for it. I wanted more for less. I wanted to be able to spend time with my sons and not worry about missing work because that also meant missing income. I wanted to have money to take my family on vacation without worrying about booking the cheapest hotel and choosing somewhere that we could drive to simply because airfare costs were outrageous. Again, I wanted more but I simply did not know how to make that happen.
A friend talked to me about futures trading. As I said, I was more than skeptical about trading in general because I thought that it meant risking my life savings without any possible hope for regaining it or making a profit. I was wrong. I was so wrong in fact, that I decided to begin this website so that I could help others to realize that they too are wrong.
Futures trading is risky but then again, everything is risky. Anytime you invest you are taking a risk. What you need, in order to minimize that risk, is someone who has “been there and done that”. You need someone who knows what he is doing and someone who has been where you are and turned things around to the point that they are now successful in their trading efforts. You need me.
I am now successful. I work very few hours every week doing accounting for some clients that have been with me for years but other than that, I do not pour myself into accounting any longer. I have chosen to keep my focus on futures trading because I have seen what it can do. I am not going to tell you that I have made millions and am now happily retired before I reach 40. I am not going to tell you that my house is paid for, although it is, with futures trading profit. I am however, going to help you to better understand futures trading and what it can do for you. Most importantly, I am going to share information with you that will help you to make up your own mind about whether or not this is something that you should pursue.
I want to help people and I want this because I wish someone had been there to help me. When I made my first trade, I was literally scared half to death. I had no idea what I was doing and did not have a clue how to proceed. I learned however, and that is exactly what everyone needs to do if they are thinking about this industry. You have to learn not only how to make a good trade but the basics of futures trading in general. If you have no idea what futures trading is then you cannot expect to earn any money doing it, right?
My site is dedicated to those of you who want to learn more about futures trading. Whether you want to begin investing or you are merely curious as to what this type of trading entails, you will be able to learn everything you want to know about it right here. You see, this is why I decided to begin this website. I wanted to share my story and the knowledge that I have gained over the past few years by trading. I wanted to help others to begin trading successfully by giving them all of the information they need to make informed decisions about their trades. I wanted to spare them the months of worry that I felt when I began simply because I had no one to help me to better understand the market and the system.
So, I am offering information on the site that is relevant to anyone who has ever considered futures trading. I am giving you valuable information so that you can make your own profit in this market. I wanted to help others as a sort of paying it forward type of thing. I learned many things on my route from financial troubles to successful trader and I want to share all of that information with you.
