Unfortunately, beginning commodity traders often focus on market, and strategy, analysis but devote little time to choosing an appropriate brokerage firm, service level or efficient means of market access.  Similarly, inexperienced traders must be familiar with calculating profit, loss and risk before putting their hard earned money on the line.  


The premise of this book is to provide readers with all of the information needed to make the critical decisions that lead up to the actual buying or selling of commodities.  Despite the lack of coverage in similarly targeted literature, I believe that many of the preliminary decisions discussed in "A Trader's First Book on Commodities" are just as critical in becoming a successful trader as market speculation.

Futures market access and brokerage firm decisions trump trading knowledge
