One of the key considerations in trading futures is liquidity. Market liquidity refers to the ease with which investors and institutions can buy and sell for contracts at the same time. The other key considerations for trading are risk management and cost management. These factors are used to determine the size of the trading position and the risks involved. These considerations can be implemented through a number of approaches, including the use of leverage, the use of margin trading and/or the use of financial instruments that create additional trading opportunities.
