Description of Futures Spread Trading Intro Course
Spread trading futures is less risk than trading outrights and can help traders grow their accounts more steadily than outrights alone. Traders looking for ways to reduce risk in futures positions should seriously consider spreads. In times like these, no one knows when the next Greece is going to happen. Futures spreads can help protect your risk against unexpected events and volatility. Futures spreads can reduce leverage and allow traders to take positions without the need for tight stops that will most likely just stop them out. Futures spreads allows traders to take advantage of medium to long term moves with less capital.

However as Saul and Kam came from this environment they have recognised the massive gaps in knowledge and an understanding of the reality of professional traders versus the independent retail traders.
