Review - Trading Eminis With Trading Concepts Inc.
Published 10/19/07 (Modified 3/8/11)
For those curious or willing to take on the challenge of learning a new investment methodology, Trading Concepts Inc offers a home study package on how to trade Emini futures.
Eminis are electronically traded futures that are much smaller than existing futures contracts traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The claimed advantages to trading Emini contracts include greater liquidity and flexibility. The most popular Eminis are those that track popular stock indexes such as the S&P 500 or the Nasdaq 100.
The home study Emini Trading System course provides a wide assortment of preparatory material, including a 250+ page comprehensive manual, 4 professionally shot video tapes (50+ page manual), 3 hours of professionally recorded audio cd's (50+ page manual), unlimited phone/e-mail consultation, free unlimited access into the members area, and a free day of market training.
It Does Take Personal Effort and There Are Risks
Trading Concepts Inc. claims that the average student will take roughly one to two months provided they are prepared to spend between five and eight study hours on the course a week, to learn and actually begin using and profiting from Emini trading.
The company's website does acknowledge that while futures and options trading offer potentially significant rewards, day trading does involve high risks and you can lose a lot of money. As always, please do very thorough research, and be careful.
