The Internet has made it very easy to learn commodity futures trading. Many novice traders do not have the time to spend learning how to trade in these fascinating markets. When I was learning about technical trading, I was given a piece of advice. Watch the charts on one market and then once you feel you have a grasp of it, start to watch a new market.

If you learn commodity futures trading, maybe the same advice could apply. Learn and follow one market regardless of whether or not you're trading on fundamentals or technicals. I found that markets have rhythms and although those rhythms could be disrupted by a major event, if you can tap into that rhythm, there's money to be made. Obviously, if you're wrong you will lose money.

Typically, I'm a believer in learning by doing, but I wouldn't recommend that path in these markets. You need to learn from someone with an ear to the ground and someone with trading experience. Let your broker know that you want to learn how to trade, and if you have a decent broker who genuinely loves the job, he or she will be glad to help. Good brokers love to talk about the markets!
