The 1k shares QQQ Single Stock Futures(SSF) contract(Sumbol QKQ), released recently, is potentially a much better trading instrument than the Nadaq 100 Emini futures NQ. Lets compare them: ________________QKQ_______________NQ | | Commissions:_____$1/contract___vs.____$2.40 / contract Underlying value:__1000 QQQ____vs.____800 QQQ shares Therefore, trading one 1000 QQQ shares SSF contract, is equivalent to trading 1.25 NQ contracts with $1/contract commission. Therefore, it's obvious that a trader will be more profitable trading 1000 shares QQQ SSF, than NQ. Why should anyone continue trading NQ (= 0.8 QKQ) with 240% higher commission, instead of trading QQQ 1000 shares SSF for $1/contract? The only reason, so far, is volume. But when more NQ traders will realize that they'll be more profitable trading 1000 shares QQQ SSF, QKQ volume will sharply increase, and probably surpass NQ.
