Intro to Indexes, ETFs, Futures

Following the market can be overwhelming, especially when a trader has a wide and varied array of positions in his portfolio.  Indexes, ETFs, and Futures simplify the task of following a specific sector or the market as a whole.  By understanding the differences between these three tools, a trader can maintain a macroeconomic view of the market.  This course provides a basic introduction to following Indexes, ETFs, and Futures, as well as a detailed explanation of how they can be used effectively as part of a trader's arsenal.
