Try interactive brokers which is a discount online broker. I don't trade futures but I watch them closely. The thing I don't like about them is governments can regulate the supply.

You can take the $ you spend trading cattle futures to Las Vegas and pretty women will serve you free drinks while you lose the money.
The odds are about the same.

Are you wanting to market your cattle or speculate?

One can do the same thing in one's house. Why would you want to fly to Vegas? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

John, I am not sure I can agree with you. If I remember correctly Hilary Clinton demonstrated to us all how you can make a lot of money trading cattle futures. All you have to do is read the Wall Street Journal. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

It is easy to get an anulment in Vegas, as long as you want one while you are there. Otherwise, it may take another plane fare comp.

Ever see the movie when the Griswald boy hit a big 'un on the slot machine? Next thing you know he is hanging out by the pool with 9s sipping on a cool beverage while his daddy Clark was getting hustled on the black jack table.

I was hoping you would say market your cattle, as speculators are the biggest villian of commodity producers.

When you get down to it, every cow calf producer is a speculator. If we weren;t we wouldn;t breed the cows speculating that we would make money on the calves.
ALl in how you look at things

No dun you are a hedger, a hedger actually produces, needs, consumes or uses a commodity. Speculators participate in the futures market purely to make money. That’s why they’re called speculators. They have no interest in or intention of producing, consuming, using or taking delivery of any commodity.
