Commodity Courses

Commodity course traders and students welcome!

Commodity courses have probably introduced more people to the world of commodity trading than any other single source. Heritage West has no affiliation with and receives no compensation from any trading course provider. Because of this we are able to offer you an unbiased opinion of the concepts, strengths, and weaknesses of each course. Our staff has read, studied, and applied many course teachings in actual trading and is well versed in their concepts.

Essentially, most courses are a simply written beginner's futures trading course. For most students, finishing the course is not the completion of an education on trading futures and options, but merely a starting point. We understand that many students, having been introduced to so much new information, might be a little nervous and confused and will have many questions about this whole new endeavor. At Heritage West we offer clients assistance in trading the different methodologies as part of an overall comprehensive trading strategy.

Heritage West brokers make trading understandable

A successful futures trading plan entails a lot more than just taking a commodity trading course and identifying entry points. We believe for example that entry analysis is only 10% of the game with money management being the balance. Our staff can assist you with understanding, applying, and enhancing the different approaches to the markets outlined in the different commodity trading courses. We'll show you how to apply what they teach and how to continue your market education. We can also help you with areas of knowledge that are critical to a well-balanced approach but might not appear in any of the course materials available.

Heritage West brokers will help you with:

  • Identifying "W" or "1-2-3" tops and bottoms, 50% retracements, and channel breakouts
  • Understanding the ins and outs of futures and options trading
  • The psychology of trading
  • Money management
  • Exit strategies
  • Order placement techniques
  • Setting valid stop losses
  • Market terminology
  • How to calculate profit or loss and risk to reward.

Heritage West Futures also provides commodity course students many additional client benefits.
