Hello, I'm Roger Groh with Groh Asset Management. We're here today to talk about buying futures and futures in oil. This is not for the faint of heart folks. If you can't lose it, you shouldn't even consider doing it because what we're talking about is specing on the price of oil either moving up or down substantially. The likelihood that you're going to make money in here is low. Generally this is a group where professionals work. Most of the volume in oil futures goes to hedging actual production from oil. So it's something to consider as you go forward. Why do it at all? Well the potential rates of return are going to be higher in futures then they would be in oil stocks or in oil mutual funds. The reason is that you can leverage them substantially. So I hope that helps, I'm Roger Groh with Groh Asset Management and thank you very much.
