Single Stock Futures
Single Stock Futures ("SSFs") are an alternative way to invest and trade equity products. SSFs are futures contracts on individual stocks, narrow based indexes or Exchange Traded Funds ("ETFs"). A contract held through expiration converts into either ownership of the stock for a long position or delivery of the stock for a short position.
OneChicago lists futures on approximately 2,800 names of well known stocks, including all of the stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, and many of the most actively traded stocks in the Russell 2000 Index. OneChicago also has Single Stock Futures on over 400 ETFs.
Trading Single Stock Futures involves substaintial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors.

SSFs are used with a broad range of trading strategies and can be applied to a variety of portfolio management needs. Since the price of an equity future typically tracks the price of the underlying instrument nearly tick for tick, trading strategies used in the stock market today could be transferable to the SSFs.
OneChicago has created a SSFs product called OCX.NoDivRisk. The new product suite addresses customers’ concern regarding the informational disadvantage vis-à-vis dividend payments and their impact on the single stock futures prices by adjusting downward the previous day’s settlement price of the OCX.NoDivRisk contract on the morning of the expiration date.
