3 Straightforward Solutions for Investors Who Are Long on Interest & Short on Time
With the ever changing economic conditions, considering new investment opportunities has never been more important. Diversification using the commodity futures markets has been a very popular avenue investors have turned to with goals of reducing portfolio risk and realizing positive gains on their overall investment portfolios. One of the most common myths about the futures markets is that participating in them is a full-time commitment. However, the truth is, there are several simple ways to become diversified using commodities without having to compromise time from life’s hectic tendencies.
Specifically, there are three great ways to participate in the futures markets with minimal time commitment:
- Futures Trading Newsletters
- Automated Futures Trading Strategies
- Managed Futures Investments
Futures Trading Newsletters
Following a Futures Trading Newsletter allows an investor to utilize information that is published by a credible trading resource about potential market opportunities. For many futures trading newsletters, investors can have the newsletter advice (e.g. trade recommendations and trade signals) automatically executed on their behalf by a licensed commodity futures broker. This enables investors to take part in intriguing market opportunities based upon fundamental and technical research, market analysis, and seasonal trends without committing the time to follow the newsletter and execute the trades on their own. Although past results cannot predict future market outcomes, using this type of resource can be a great way to instill confidence for investors who are willing to rely on a futures market professional but who do not have the time to study the futures markets themselves.

Automated Futures Trading Strategies
Automated Futures Trading Strategies (also referred to as Automated Futures Trading Systems) revolutionized electronic trading when they were first introduced. As it stands today, automated futures trading strategies are still one of the most popular ways for investors to access the futures markets. These mechanical, computer-based strategies are developed using algorithms and can be automatically executed for investors trading accounts with professional supervision and monitoring by their brokers. Before an automated strategy is published, it is normally back tested to generate hypothetical results based upon past market data and technical indicators. As they have evolved, automated futures trading strategies have shown to be a viable “hands-off” investment option that can suit many types of investors based on their level of comfort, available risk capital and risk tolerance.

Managed Futures Investments
Managed Futures Investments give investors a fantastic avenue for diversification. All trading decisions in managed futures programs are performed by a CTA, or Commodity Trading Advisor. Each CTA has a unique trading style and approach to the futures markets. In addition, it is important to find a CTA who is licensed and has a verified performance history. Managed futures programs are designed for those who wish to start with a larger principal investment. Generally, these programs start with a $50,000 to $100,000 minimum investment; however, initial funding can vary by CTA and the risk tolerance of each individual investor.
