Victor talks about how he trades futures and options...how he decides what to buy or sell...when to take a position...how to manage risk. He talks about specific markets...thinks WTI futures trading below zero was HUGE...may have been the “Lehman Moment” of this crisis when people realized they were exposed to WAY more risk than they thought. He wonders if we are now experiencing a “secular transition” or turning point not only in markets but also in societies’ relationship with government.
PI Financial Corp. is a Member of the Canadian Investor Protection Fund. The risk of loss in trading commodity interests can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. In considering whether to trade or the authorize someone else to trade for you, you should be aware of the following. If you purchase a commodity option you may sustain a total loss of the premium and of all transaction costs. If you purchase or sell a commodity futures contract or sell a commodity option or engage in off-exchange foreign currency trading you may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds or security deposit and any additional fund that you deposit with your broker to establish or maintain your position. You may be called upon by your broker to deposit a substantial amount of additional margin funds, on short notice, in order to maintain your position. If you do not provide the requested funds within the prescribe time, your position may be liquidated at a loss, and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult to impossible to liquidate a position.
