Welcome to the Bullish Bears Futures Trading Room! Our futures trade room is a 24/7 chat room where we collaborate and have fun while learning, trading futures, making money, and building friendships together, with a focus on the Futures markets (and Forex is allowed as well!)

FUTURES TRADING ROOM – BENEFITS OF FUTURES TRADING?
Futures trading has some major benefits over stock trading. Namely:
- More margin/leverage for futures trading, with less capital requirements (broker dependent).
- Futures Trading Speculators who are skilled can make more money, more quickly than they would in stocks.
- Future markets are highly liquid, with tighter bid/ask spreads and more volume.
- Commissions and trade execution costs are less than trading traditional stocks.
- Futures are very technical, respecting candlestick patterns and candlestick reversal setups.
- Paper trading Futures is realistic and a great trading tool to build experience.
- You can easily short Futures – unlike the restrictions that are placed on shorting stocks.
ENTER OUR 24 HOUR LIVE FUTURES TRADING ROOM
We expect you to take responsibility for your own futures trading, entries and exits. Futures traders in our futures trading chat room will call out symbols like /CL /ES /YM often. These are not necessarily calls to buy or sell a futures contract, but often to bring attention to movement and the fact they are watching it, trading it long or short. Know what you are doing and getting yourself into!
Spend some time with us and learn the flow of the Futures Trading Room. There is no pressure to talk if you’d rather just listen and take notes.
Please know that our community is a safe place for you to ask newbie questions. No one is going to make fun of you. We were all noobs once.
If you are new and trading with a small account, please don’t trade with real money. Paper trade with real time data. If you can make money in the simulator, consistently, then you can move on to making real futures trades. First, practice making GOOD trades – not good money. The money will come after.
The money comes after you have put in the work. It is important to have reasonable expectations and goals when it comes to futures trading, if you are to succeed.
If you are new to the stock market and need help getting started then check out our how to get started in the stock market post.

We have both live futures account traders exercising futures trading strategies, futures trading with real money, traders trading futures options and futures options spreads, and those who are just sitting back and learning with paper trading in our futures trade room.

Futures trading is different than stocks, and has its own unique challenges and differences. A solid trading strategy and hours if 100’s of hours of futures trading practice is required!
Futures trading can be extremely volatile around economic events and political events, We are all at the mercy of the market and have learned to trade appropriately based on what is happening. Not what we think is happening. Let the charts dictate your trade, not your emotions!
