    Anyone want to discuss...

    Over-rated or greatest thing since sliced bread?

    Liquity Tracker
    Not a chance of working or genious ahead of its time?

    Single Stock Futures
    Will they ever trade in the U.S.?
    What is the hang up now?
    Margin, contract size, regulation, licensing reps, commissions...??
    Will they be a good tool even if they insist on a level playing field?
    How will you use them?

  3. SSF's will never be a viable product because the powers that be (they) will find a way through either margins, tax treatment, etc to make them not so attractive so that Grasso and the NYSE never lose much business. Remember, after Goldman Sachs bought SLK, they are one of the largest Specialist units on the floor. And, they just sold off SLK/FOC futures. Are they going to let it happen? I think not.
  4. great point,,,,they run everything
