attention than others. This applies to the futures trading guide.
Caution should be exercised in order to ensure the losses, if any, are
limited at worst.

bought or sold with a margin deposit, which would mean that some
leverage ratio is evident from a calculation of 10 to 1 and 20 to 1 on

considerable should the movements be on a downward trend.

limit any possible losses, including that of the margin.
