Single stock futures (SSFs) - the trading of futures on individual stocks - is a contemporary investment instrument in the US. This union of stock and futures trading promises many opportunities for investors; however, along with opportunity comes risk, which can only be resolved through experience and education. This volume explains the ins and outs of SFFs and advises on stock and futures trading professionals as well as sophisticated individual investors on how to move forward in the world of trading futures on single stocks. It offers an overview of the vital educational, procedural and financial management issues regarding SFFs, 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; and 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 Commmodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). These agencies will require continuing professional education on SSFs, which this text hopes to help with.
