Investing in Futures & Commodities

Futures and commodities investments provide investors with more intricate financial requirements a means to hopefully gain from both the upward and downward movement of commodity and financial markets.

Basics of Futures & Commodities Investing

Futures and commodities speculators can benefit from greatly leveraged exposures in both financial and non-financial markets (commodities such as energies, meats, metals and grains). Hence, they can buy futures contracts by depositing even a little portion of the total contract price. Their aim is to gain from movements in the value of the futures contract.

Hedgers, those who hold a particular commodity (asset) or have a definite investment (such as energy cost), frequently choose a position opposite of the cash market to help lessen the risk of falling or rising commodity prices.

Risk of Investing in Futures & Commodities

You could lose all your investment and in certain instances, even more than that. Moreover, you may at times encounter difficulty in liquidating your futures contracts, which limits your use of cash.

Before Investing, consider the following:

• Financial Resources
• Investment Objectives

Savings: Where to earn the best interest on your money right now

If one of your New Year's resolutions is to grow your savings, one smart strategy is to keep your money in an account earning the most interest.
The Federal Reserve has been slow to raise interest rates, and even recent hikes haven't trickled down to consumers in the form of better savings yields. The average savings account offers a paltry 0.19% annual return, only slightly better than a year ago, according to Deposit Accounts.
Some experts say that money could grow faster at online banks. Some CDs, or certificates of deposit, are also more generous than others.
"If you're not seeking out the best returns on savings accounts and CDs, you're leaving money on the table," said Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate.com. "It's the only place in the investment universe where you can get extra returns without extra risks."

9 money mistakes to avoid in your 40s

Your 20s were all about setting up your financial foundation and establishing good habits. Your 30s were about life changes like getting married, having kids, and building your career.
In your 40s, everything is amplified even more. You've got growing kids and aging parents — and what you don't have is a ton of spare time.
