Top 100 Futures Trading Blogs

Futures investing was the original means of establishing exposure to commodities. It was first utilized by farmers and other commodity producers in order to hedge against poor crop yields among other things. Now, futures contracts can be utilized by anyone with an account, allowing a number of active traders to open positions in their favorite hard assets. But keeping up with the ins and outs of the futures world can be a tall order. Below we outline the top 100 futures blogs (in no particular order) from around the web to give investors a leg up on these trading vehicles [for more commodity futures news subscribe to our free newsletter].
