Single-Stock Futures by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
How can you take advantage of them? To find out, we asked OneChicago and Nasdaq LIFFE, the two exchanges expected to launch this hot new product, a few questions. Here’s what they had to say.
Why has it taken so long to launch
single-stock futures (SSFs) in the US?
OneChicago: The products were
banned about 20 years ago when the
Securities and Exchange Commission
(SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading
Commission (CFTC) could not agree
on who had jurisdiction over them.
