In this video, Rod shares:

  • How futures platforms, brokers, and data connections work

So if you're asking questions like "which futures broker should I choose?" or "how do I get futures data?," this is the video for you.

Rod shows you what he uses so you can get an idea of what's out there. (we don't endorse any particular broker or platform)

Many traders are intimidated by the wide array of futures tools available, but don't be -- Rod makes it simple.

And if you join Rod's Futures on Fire trial, you'll get even more free futures resources from Rod.
