Futures are derivative products that get their value from the price movement of an underlying instrument such as Gold, a Currency pair, or a Government Bond. Kinda like how some people derive their value from Instagram likes. They're basically contracts to buy or sell an instrument, at or before a fixed time, for an agreed price. They can either be used to hedge investment positions (to mitigate the risk of price movements) or to speculate (to try and profit from price movements). This page will show you ideas, news, and price action for the futures market.
