Whether we like to admit it or not, the fear of missing out, or FOMO, does influence our behavior. FOMO is just as likely to lead to a bad trade as it is to a good career choice (or the other way around).  In this video from MarketsWiki Education’s World of Opportunity event in Chicago, RSM Partner Todd Briggs talks about how this fear can both positively and negatively impact our lives.

Futures Market Myths

In this video from our MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity event in Chicago, Donna Heidkamp, the executive director of RJO Futures, says the financial industry gives people the opportunity to be lifelong students, continuing to learn about the economy, politics, culture and many other topics. She also explores some of the myths about the futures markets, including that there is too much leverage in commodities, that you have to take delivery, and that nobody makes money in futures.

The Marriage of Money and Machines

At MarketsWiki Education’s World of Opportunity event in Chicago, Rumi Morales, entrepreneur and partner in Outlier Ventures, gave a brief history of trading and the technological changes that have swept the industry, ending with blockchain, which she said is “revolutionary” because no central counterparty is necessary. Blockchain, along with the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence, will lead to a “Convergence Ecosystem,” she said.
