Types of Risk for Futures Traders

There are several types of Risk discussed on the Series 3 Exam and Futures License Tests

Transfer Risk
Liquidity Risk
Reduction Risk

Transfer Risk is the possibility of a loss when the position may require a transfer of securities or futures. Example would be Writing Calls or other contract where an obligation lies to another contract holder on the Buy Side.

Liquidity Risk is the Risk of how quickly a position can be turned into Cash - or how slowly. Liquidity is the Cash position the trader is in.

Risk Reduction can be achieved by reducing exposure through hedging a position against a loss or placing a stop order or other floor protection order.
