Futures trading is not suitable for all investors, and involves the risk of loss. Futures are a leveraged investment, and because only a percentage of a contract’s value is required to trade, it is possible to lose more than the amount of money deposited for a futures position. Therefore, traders should only use funds that they can afford to lose without affecting their lifestyles. And only a portion of those funds should be devoted to any one trade because they cannot expect to profit on every trade. Swaps trading is not suitable for all investors, involves the risk of loss and should only be undertaken by investors who are eligible contract participants (ECPs) within the meaning of section 1(a)18 of the Commodity Exchange Act
