Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hey Dan, Great video! Is there a way in Think or Swim or any internet site to see the volume of SELLERS vs the volume of BUYERS?
Thanks Dan…. and always GO BLACKHAWKS
Hey Badger, Well, for any trade that happens one person buys it from the person selling it. So it’s always 1 buyer for 1 seller. That said, if we want to look at how the trade was initiated and we assume what trades on or closer to the bid is a sell and what trades on or closer to the offer is a buy, we can look at Think or Swim on the Trade tab and scroll down to “Today’s Options Statistics” and it gives you some of that information. I hope that helps! Dan
