  3. It's still long way to go for SSF. I swing traded SUNW, the spread was about 5 cents most of time. Fill is fast if you just hit the bid/ask.

    I'd love to trade them, but I don't know of any professional equity trading firms that offer them. I remember reading when they were introduced that they would be allowed in either an equities account or a futures account. What's the deal with that?

    Is anybody on this site arbing ssf's vs. the common? Anybody at all? Care to share your experience?

    Not enough volume for intraday arbing and at EOD they settle at common stock price.
  7. for SSF's to take off ?

    will they ever get going ?

    or is the mass of liquidity needed just not there?

    trading them is for people who cannot meet PDT rules ?


    I tried NEM today ...

    I am the total volume for both exchanges combined

    12 contracts :p
