For folks that are interested in learning the basics of Futures trading, I came across this video series which is pretty informative, easy to watch, and free of cost.

I have no affiliation with them, just passing this info along after spending some time looking at the videos - it might be helpful for newcomers looking to get into futures and having the terminology explained in layman terms.

Hi @Symple,

This is, as you say, not about futures, so it is off-topic for this thread.

I do not see where it would be on-topic, because we have a generally "no politics" policy in this forum. I took a look, and while this is about history, it is from a political point of view and it does not assist anyone in trading.

In the future, please keep your posts oriented more toward trading. There is an "Off Topic" section for anything else, but it is better to not post about political matters there either.

Thanks.

Bob.

In order to get some basics about futures I would strongly suggest the CME website that has some amazing introductory videos.
They are not meant to teach you trading, but they are so useful to understand the reason why futures exist in the first place. Maybe they dive a little bit too much into the technical details of the contract but it's definitely worth watching these vides at least once. This is a good starting point: https://www.cmegroup.com/education/courses/introduction-to-futures.html

Also if you want to gain a very technical perspective it's fun and useful to watch TastyTrade show, in particular the section "closing the gap", you can see the videos on Youtube.
Tom Sosnoff hosts Pete Mulmat who is an encyclopedia of knowledge about futures and works for CME itself.
I leave you this link, but you can find all videos on youtube: https://tastytrade.com/shows/closing-the-gap-futures-edition/episodes/yield-curve-composition-zf-setups-12-20-2019
