Stock Futures Quote

A Single Stock Future is a futures contract with the underlying asset being of one particular stock, usually in batches of 100. No share rights or dividend transactions take place during purchase. Acting exactly like a futures contract, a Single Stock Future gives investors increased leverage capabilities within the market. Unlike most options, these products can be traded on margin. They are not subject to the limitations of short selling that stocks are. Single Stock Futures are traded in a number of financial markets in the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, South Africa and India, among others. At present, South Africa has the largest market for single stock futures in the world. There are an average of 700,000 contracts traded there on a daily basis.

Single Stock Futures were prohibited from any stock exchange in the United States in the 1980's; the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission couldn't agree on who would have regulatory authority over the single stock futures. Eventually, the two commissions came to an agreement where they shared jurisdiction after the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000. Single Stock Futures began trading again in the United States on November 8, 2002.

Two new exchanges originally offered security futures products, including single-stock futures, however one of the exchanges has closed since then. The single enduring market was dubbed OneChicago because it is a joint undertaking of three formerly existing Chicago-based exchanges: the Chicago Board Options Exchange; Chicago Mercantile Exchange; and the Chicago Board of Trade. In 2006, Interactive Brokers, a brokerage firm, made an investment in OneChicago and is now a partial proprietor of the exchange.

Single Stock Futures have not yet gained noteworthy popularity amongst securities and derivatives traders in the United States. The total daily contract volume averaged roughly 26,000 contracts per day in December of 2005. Although 2005 total annual volume increased 188% compared to 2004, volumes are still relatively small in comparison to more established and popular derivative contracts. For instance, United States equity and ETF options trade around 6,000,000 contracts per day.

The value of a futures contract is zero at the moment in which it is established, but changes after that until time (T), at which point its value equals the current cost of the stock minus the originally established cost of the futures contract.
