Although it has only been a few years since the original version of “A Trader’s First Book on Commodities”, we have seen dramatic changes in the futures and options industry.  The most profound change has come to light in the aftermath of a technology boom. Improvements in technology and competitive intraday position margin standards have had profound impacts on the markets, commission, brokerage services and speculation in futures and options.


Here are a few highlights of the Third Edition additions:


  • The new reality of the commodity markets and the impact extreme swings in volatility has had on traders.

  • Discussions of the collapse of two major commodity brokers and the long-term impact on traders and the industry as a whole.

  • Improvements in market access, trading platforms, and commodity brokerage service due to technology.

  • The slow death of open outcry trading and its impact.

  • Challenges of option trading platforms.

  • The new style of futures broker.

  • Updated charts and examples
