    Somewhere between may and july, the Single Stocks Futures is expected to be introduced.

    What are your opinions about it? Will it have a good liquidity?

    The fact that It will allow SELL SHORT on the DOWNTICK, do you guys think that it will force the Nasdaq to remove its SHORT SALE RULE, so they dont loose market to the SSF? Or people who trade Nasdaq will migrate to SSF because of this advantage?

    What you guys have to say?

    although the intro-date is arriving quickly, it seems nobody has
    really an idea where these animals will be headed in reality.
  3. It would be nice to know if they are fungible.

  5. I think SSF's will be a hit. With more leverage than stocks, why wouldn't someone trade them?

    I can't wait. I think there will huge opportunities for both futures and stock traders.

    I think it will be a cash machine for the first little while.

    Why you think it will be a cashmachine? Arbitrage?

  8. Absolutely.

    Regarding your arbitrage comment...

    you must have very low comissions in order to be able to perform many trades a day, right?

    Otherwise the comissions would kill your profits....

    If I''m saying any absurd, please tell me........
