While there is a degree of luck involved in futures and options trading, consistent gains can only be realized by those who put the probabilities in their favor, and even then there are no assurances.   Understanding and implementing strategies that comply with the aforementioned items may help you to achieve such probabilities in your trading.  Nonetheless, don’t forget that regardless of the strategy used there is substantial risk in futures and options trading and isn’t suitable for everyone.
