The precious metal has slowly been extending its gains in what looks like a convincing breakout. Falling U.S. Treasury yields have been one of the reasons underpinning the latest moves, since nominal rates do not express the true negative yield on long bonds adjusted for term inflation. The yield on nominal 10-year Treasuries dropped below 1.60% at the time of the upside move in gold. As gold has no yield, it competes with the benchmark of safe returns. Gold prices are rising as the rebound in Treasuries remains muted despite some better-than-expected jobless claims and productivity data.

Programs like Earn2Trade&rsquo;s Gauntlet&trade; Mini can guarantee the funding you need if you can show off what you can do. It also provides a valuable learning experience along the way. Moreover, the test comes with various perks, including live data for trading simulator accounts, access to professional trading platforms, a flexible schedule, the highest rated customer support in the industry, and more.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Still not sure whether a </span><a href="https://www.benzinga.com/go/earn2trade"><span style="font-weight: 400;">funded trading account</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> is the right choice for you? Let&rsquo;s look at three ways how becoming a funded trader can help reduce the risks you take in your day-to-day trading.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">Reduces the Capital You Are Personally Risking</span></h2> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Funded trading accounts give you the rare opportunity to trade with someone else&rsquo;s money while keeping most of the profits for yourself.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">After completing Earn2Trade&rsquo;s evaluation program and receiving the offer to become a&nbsp; funded trade, you will be able to enjoy a profit share split of 80/20, where you will keep 80% of the profits you make. Earn2Trade&rsquo;s funding offer is one of the better ones on the market since some funded trader companies can keep up to 50% of what you earn.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">For example, with the Gauntlet Mini&trade; program, you will use virtual capital to ease your entrance cost into the futures market. Once you pass the exam and receive a funded trading offer from Earn2Trade&rsquo;s partner prop trading firm, you will get the chance to trade without risking any personal capital. The prop firm bears the entire risk of potential losses, while you have the comfort of retaining a significant portion of your profits.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Paired with the free educational material they offer during your subscription makes this evaluation a convenient opportunity for everyone who has the skill but lacks the capital to make it in </span><a href="https://www.benzinga.com/money/best-futures-trading-courses/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">futures trading</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">Less Psychological Pressure</span></h2> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">While trading may be a viable career for many people, it can be relatively risky and stressful. The pressure associated with risking your capital, pursuing profit targets, or the fear of missing out on a tempting trading opportunity often take their toll on novice traders.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">However, being a successful trader isn&rsquo;t just about having a hunter&rsquo;s mindset of chasing down each opportunity to make money that comes your way. It&rsquo;s just the opposite. The traders with a good sense for picking the right time and asset are usually the most successful at trading. Alternatively, it&rsquo;s those that stick to their strategy and don&rsquo;t get carried away by tempting opportunities outside of the plan.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Funded ...</span></p><p><a href=https://www.benzinga.com/markets/futures/21/05/20966828/3-ways-a-funded-trading-account-can-help-you-reduce-your-risks alt=3 Ways a Funded Trading Account Can Help You Reduce Your Risks>Full story available on Benzinga.com</a></p> Futures Markets Futures Markets Benzinga Wed, 05 May 2021 14:50:14 +0000 Benzinga Contributor 20966828 at https://www.benzinga.com A Peek Into The Markets: US Stock Futures Gain; General Motors Earnings In Focus https://www.benzinga.com/news/earnings/21/05/20958289/a-peek-into-the-markets-us-stock-futures-gain-general-motors-earnings-in-focus <p><strong>Pre-open movers</strong></p> <p>U.S. stock futures traded higher in early pre-market trade after the Nasdaq dipped more than 260 points in the previous session.
