Every trader has some kind of commodity futures trading systems, but do they stick to them? Maybe you are researching different systems that you want to try out. My recommendation is if you must try out different systems, then do so with a small amount of money, and stick to the plan. Better still, hire a broker and let him or her make the tough decisions.

When you are working with a broker, make sure you ask what the goal is for the price movement. Not only will you be able to check the charts and see if you think it's realistic, but if the price approaches, you can double check to see that your broker is getting you out. Additionally, knowing the goal in advance will help you understand the broker's strategy, and you will be on your way to learning how to trade on your own.

Remember that most trades lose money, and so you must remember to let your winners ride. Most amateur traders don't cut their losses short, and they get out of their winning trades too quickly. Remember the goal in trading is to come out ahead! If most trades lose, your winners have to make up for the losses. Make sure your brokerage has a system in place to take this simple concept into consideration.
