While the School of Futures has been designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to futures and options trading, it is a purely educational course and not a replacement for professional training or certification/licensure courses. As such, all participants should recognize that futures and options contracts are complex financial instruments that involve significant risk, and that incorporating them effectively into well-defined and disciplined trading strategies typically requires extensive education and trading experience. University students and other potential traders who may have limited financial resources for trading are strongly urged to consult with a professional advisor before they start trading.
