According to PFGBEST, one of the most significant events to rock the U.S. financial market in decades has begun. This event is the listing of and public trading of a product called single stock futures (SSF). According to the PFGBEST website, “The world is changing and people are taking control of their futures and their portfolios.”
Single stock futures, by definition, are future contracts with the underlying asset of a publicly-traded security. Perhaps you have traded stocks. Perhaps you have traded futures. With single stock futures, an investor can speculate on the direction of one stock (or a sector) or hedge risk associated with their existing portfolio. Single stock futures, according to PFGBEST, are an asset class that took years to develop and bring to market. Continuing the PFGBEST commitment to education, the company actively supports various educational entities devoted to how single stock futures work, why they might be useful to you as a personal investor or trader, and how to access ongoing research concerning single stock futures.
Savvy investors know they must find opportunity where it exists – and then take advantage of it. To be successful in investing, it is necessary to stay ahead of the learning curve as new asset classes become available. According to the PFGBEST website, staying ahead of that curve often means an investor must learn to trade the world’s most popular stocks in “the other stock market.” When it comes to an investment portfolio, PFGBEST helps clients stay ahead of that curve and find opportunity, wherever it may be.
It is important to note, according to PFGBEST, that single stock futures are not suitable for all types of investors. The PFGBEST website, and any National Futures Association -compliant entity, is clear that there is a substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options. Also available on the PFGBEST website is a downloadable security futures risk disclosure. Another link on the PFGBEST website allows investors to obtain an additional required security futures risk disclosure statement.
While single stock futures trading has its risks, PFGBEST brings education to the forefront. In the PFGBEST simulated training program BEST Test, a client is able to begin the learning process and practice in the area of trading or investing in single stock futures. A 30-day free trial with the PFGBEST simulation software (BEST Test) may be the first best step in SSF practice trading.
