Second, a live show via the Web site is a new mechanism for us. It will make our news delivery even more real-time, while expanding the range of offerings for CNBC's readers and viewers. (Toss in offerings from our NBCUniversal and Comcast and our menu is absolutely huge).
The show, hosted by Jackie DeAngelis, will air at 1 p.m. ET Tuesdays and Thursdays. Jackie will be talking with two top futures traders — Anthony Grisanti, founder and president of GRZ Energy, and Rich Ilczyszyn, founder and chief market strategist, iiTrader — about recent events in the futures pits and how traders can capitalize on them. In fact, they already have some tutorials up on the Futures Now showpage.
If you can't catch the show live, it will be available on demand as well as here at CNBC.com. Of course, people who watch it live will have a head start on the strategies.
