Each year, trillions of dollars are circulated throughout the global markets of the world. Many individuals and organizations have utilized this system to invest and diversify their interests so that gains could be reaped and for a foundation to be laid through commerce. The whirlwind pace of such transactions and their complexity leaves many common consumers confused and unsure of how and where to invest their nest eggs.
Recently, futures investments on smaller scales have become popular as investment tools for individuals, families, and companies with a smaller asset base. The principle of “futures” investing is that a contract is specified where a purchase will be made of a currency or good for a specific quantity, at a specific price, on a specific date in the future. Given the ebb and flow of the markets, this sometimes leads to highly valuable assets being obtained at a bargain-basement price point. This is appealing to many investors, who feel it is worth the potential risk in these investments.
“Leading Edge” with host Jimmy Johnson will be featuring a multitude of the individuals and organizations who deal directly in futures trading. Through educational segments for Public Television, these pieces will focus on the benefits and potential pitfalls of investing, and the principles that all investors should remember to successfully grow their portfolios.
The series is distributed to public television stations throughout the United States and is not distributed through PBS. Please visit the Leading Edge website at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com or email the producers at info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com for more information.
