Product Description

Futures For You by Carley Garner


Are there advantages to trading stock index futures over equity index products such as Spdrs or individual stocks?

There are many more participants in the equity markets than there are in futures, and people tend to gravitate to what they are most familiar with. However, convenience and familiarity arenít necessarily optimal. The futures markets have been labeled as dangerous due to the ease of gaining leverage and the corresponding horror stories of traders going broke, but in reality, the same risks are evident in active stock speculation. Donít blame the trading venue, blame the participants.

The most popular stock index futures product is the Standard & Poorís 500. This is a futures contract written with the S&P 500 as the underlying asset. The most widely traded version of this is the emini S&P, so that will be our focus.
