i am only talking about arbitraging different stocks..
if you compare the spread,
i.e. SPY vs ES, SPY spread is less, which give more chance to make more money or lose less.
liquidity on most stocks are more than single stock future, liquidity is needed to exit fast at any cost..
these factors makes the quick strategy a winner... and by quick i mean from 1 second to 15 minutes.
if you talk about trading that lasts few hours or days, i agree, trading futures, is better, if your trading for days, i would go for options also...
