Stocks & Commodities V. 22:11 (92-93): Websites For Traders: FuturesBuzz.com by David Penn
Perhaps there will never come a day when mainstream information and news about the futures and commodities markets will rival the information and news available about the equity markets.
Until then, futures and commodities traders — current and aspiring — will have to rely on websites like FuturesBuzz.com to keep abreast of the diverse set of information and datapoints they need to get and stay ahead of the game.
FuturesBuzz.com was founded back in 2000. According to its founders, the website’s original goal was twofold:
First, they wanted to create a one-stop portal for traders looking for sound, articulate information on the futures
and commodities markets. But second, the founders of FuturesBuzz.com wanted to alert traders to a major problem in their industry: disreputable brokers. As they wrote in the “About Us” section of the website:
"By telling the stories on how they defrauded investors, we believe this will make investors more aware and
hopefully avoid some of these schemes."
In a few short years, FuturesBuzz.com has grown from a futures truth squad to that one-stop portal for those looking for charts, research, market commentary, and analysis, as well as some of the basic “what you need to know to trade futures” material such as commitment
of traders reports, trading calendars, and specifications for futures contracts.
