    Completely new to this. Never bought shares in anything.

    But I’d like to start buying futures in crops, oil, gas and the like.

    I have no idea how to start though. Which platform should I use for example?

    Thank you for those links!

    Do you know if its possible to trade weather futures on tasty works. As this is also something I would like to try?

    I presume it would be best to have an account with each of these then?

    Using CME group for the weather and tasty works for everything else

    I haven't really looked at CME groups commissions or anything else.

    Does Ameritrade offer futures? As I know that they have those practice accounts so I thought it might be a good idea for someone starting out to get some practice
