Terms to Remember

Dec 29, 2008
VIEWER QUESTION:
Hello,
   I have seldom heard about margins about commodity trading.  What would margin be?  Also, I have seldom hear about points about commodity trading.  What would point be?
Roger Stoller

JOHN'S ANSWER:
Roger:
   Thanks for watching.  Here is a short tutorial on common terms you may hear on the show.  Points, normally refer to hundredths of a percent (interest rates) such that 100 points is 1%, but can also be used for other prices sort of generically.
John
