Fortucast focuses on precise timing and movement analysis while also attempting to provide insights into market behavior that are not found elsewhere. It is not a black box system. Seasoned traders that have good money management skills and who react quickly to changing market conditions do particularly well with Fortucast reports. With respect to Fortucast, they read between the lines, and enter and exit at slightly different prices than our recommendations based on their insights and unexpected market conditions.

In fact, very few of our clients take every trade that we recommend, especially in terms of the multiple position strategies we may suggest. We ask you to work with your broker, taking into consideration your net worth, the size of your account, the markets they are familiar with, and their margins in order to develop money management strategies that best suit your personal finances. Two of the most common errors made by both new and seasoned commodity traders are undercapitalization and improper money management.
Fortucast recommends that you have at least 4 times the margin money recommended by your clearing firm available for every commodity that you trade. We suggest that no particular trade should risk more than 10% of your capital. In addition, for most short-term speculators, the ideal entry point(s) should be identified so that the amount at risk is in the $300-400 range. If you decide to trade multiple positions, a good principle is to be in a profitable position before adding as well as having sufficient equity to manage the additional exposure.
While we recommend multiple contracts at times, it is often to allow new entry points for subscribers who have yet to enter the trade. If we trade two contracts on an initial entry, be certain that you have enough margin so as to not overextend your account.
The financial commodity markets are considerably more volatile than the agricultural markets and therefore require larger accounts to withstand the larger price movements. Avoid trading commodities that are too big for your account. For example, we feel that the large bond contract needs a $25,000 account even though the margin may be as small as $2700. If you are starting with a smaller account, we suggest looking to agricultural markets such as corn or sugar or trading mini-financial markets like the mini Dow or mini currencies. Most importantly though, we strongly advise a disciplined approach with pre-defined risk parameters and tolerances (recognizing that stop losses do not necessarily ensure an exit price).
