Futures trading was once a way for farmers to hedge against price movements and to guarantee themselves a stable income. However, in the past decade, futures trading revolutionized the way investors and speculators profited.  Trading in the futures market is a golden opportunity for traders to not only hedge against price movement, but to also profit in large amounts through market speculation.
