Mike interviews Colin Carter.

Today, We are pumped to dive into an episode about unlocking the financial world’s mysteries. We had the honour of chatting with Colin A. Carter, the brains behind “Futures and Options Markets: An Introduction.” Trust me, folks, this conversation was a game-changer, and We are stoked to share the highlights with you!


Picture this: we started by delving into the fascinating history of futures trading. Colin dropped some knowledge bombs about how commodities like tulips, yes, you heard that right, tulips, used to have insane value back in the day. I mean, who would’ve thought right? It’s wild to think how something as simple as a flower could spark a trading frenzy that rocked the financial world.

We dove deeper into the nitty-gritty of futures and options trading, exploring how farmers, gold miners, and even airlines use these markets to their advantage. Ever wondered why airlines are so obsessed with hedging their fuel costs? Colin spilled the beans on how a single dollar change in crude oil prices can send shockwaves through the industry, costing airlines millions. It’s a high-stakes game, but those who play it smart can reap serious rewards.

Now, here’s where things get really interesting. We talked about the role of media in shaping market perceptions. Colin doesn’t buy into all the hype. He shared some eye-opening insights about how the media often spins stories about market events and why it’s crucial to cut through the noise and focus on the facts. It’s all about staying level-headed and making informed decisions, folks.

But let’s not forget about the practical side of things. Colin gave us the lowdown on how to dip your toes into futures and options trading. From websites like to opening accounts with brokers like Schwab, he laid a roadmap for anyone looking to get started. And hey, you don’t need a fancy degree or a Wall Street background to make it happen. With a bit of market savvy and a whole lot of determination, anyone can learn the ropes.

Mike Fallat and Colin Carter talk about the book Futures and Options Markets: An Introduction.

Think long-term, do your homework, and don’t get overwhelmed by the hype. Trust me, it’s a recipe for success.

If you’re still hungry for more knowledge after our chat, Colin recommended diving into the world of ETFs and researching independently. The key is to never stop learning and never stop hustling. Because remember, a little bit of knowledge can go a long way, but it’s up to you to harness that knowledge and turn it into something truly remarkable.
