A comprehensive introduction to the newest trading phenomenon in the United States. Single stock futures (SSFs)-the trading of futures on individual stocks-is a new investment instrument in the United States. This union of stock and futures trading promises many new opportunities for investors; however, along with opportunity comes risk, which can only be resolved through experience and education. For the first time ever, a leading stock and futures trading expert explains the ins and outs of SSFs, and tells stock and futures trading professionals as well as sophisticated individual investors how to move forward in the new world of trading futures on single stocks. Jake Bernstein offers an overview of the vital educational, procedural, and financial management issues regarding SSFs, including: * The essential aspects of futures and stock trading that apply to SSFs * Specific trading strategies, systems, and methods * What works-and what doesn't * How to assess risks and rewards Because SSFs don't fit easily into either securities or futures categories, they are regulated by both the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). These agencies soon will require continuing professional education on SSFs, for which this book can be a valuable tool.
