The 2008 financial meltdown caused most investors to become extremely conservative with their investment strategies. Many turned their assets into cash and earned that tantalizing .04% interest rate. Some investors even went as far as to purchase bonds with negative yields! That’s right, rather than earning interest, they were paying sovereign governments interest just to hold their money safely.
Despite the economic uncertainty that still surrounds us, investors are gravitating back to normal investor behavior. And if CNBC’s new online web-show focused on futures trading is any indication, it seems as we’ve finally made it Back to the Futures.
CNBC is premiering a 15-minute online show today about the multi-trillion dollar futures market called Futures Now. The show will stream live on CNBC.com on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 P.M. Its purpose is both informational and educational.
