    Single Stock Futures. BTW, the PDT rule does apply to ETF's as they are straight stocks.

    bear with me here but what are the ssf symbols for S&P , nasdaq ? The same goes for the e-minis ?

    Thanks again from a newbie
  6. Info on Eminis:


    Info on SSF (Single Stock Futures)


    Also, both of the above links you'll find some educational videos explaning what they are.

    Have fun.
