The futures market is a way to invest in a basket of assets that have a fixed or predetermined price at a future date. Futures are also known as forward contracts, forward sales, and forward contracts.
Futures are similar to options in that they give the investor the right to buy or sell a specific asset at a fixed price in the future. Futures have a fixed price at a future date, but the price is not set in stone. The future price can change based on a variety of factors, including the investor’s investment goal, the market, and the asset’s underlying value.
Futures are a great way to diversify your investment portfolio. They allow you to buy assets that you may not be able to buy outright, and they allow you to benefit from the ups and downs of the market.
