Predictability

a "future," in financial terms, is a contract to buy or sell something in the future at a price you set today.

would you want to pay today, or agree upon a price today, for an item you will then have to buy next year?

I would buy today. I cannot wait. Instant gratification that's what I want. Am I being a little too 'clichéd' and childish? typical GenX answer I guess. :)

pay for something that i cant get until a year later? i can barely stand waiting a week for packages to arrive in the mail!!

so i choose the 2nd option, if i get it later, i'll pay for it later (with the agreed upon price)

I'm not a gambling girl, so I'll say no. I'm not sure I'd feel like any predicted price wouldn't be too inflated.

I've also got to say no. I'd probably have forgotten what i'd bought in the future and then wonder why I got it (hey, just like I do with ebay).
