What is trading?

Financial trading is buy or sell an underlying value in a financial market with the intention of obtaining a speculative profit. We buy something with the intention to sell more expensive, or sell it first with the intention to buy cheaper later. We done this with futures tied to stock indices, with commodities and currencies. We perform an intraday trading where our positions are opened or closed typically within the same day.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
