A comprehensive introduction to the newest trading phenomenon in the United States.
Single stock futures (SSFs)-the trading of futures on individual stocks-is a new investment instrument in the United States. This union of stock and futures trading promises many new opportunities for investors; however, along with opportunity comes risk, which can only be resolved through experience and education.
For the first time ever, a leading stock and futures trading expert explains the ins and outs of SSFs, and tells stock and futures trading professionals as well as sophisticated individual investors how to move forward in the new world of trading futures on single stocks. Jake Bernstein offers an overview of the vital educational, procedural, and financial management issues regarding SSFs, including:
*The essential aspects of futures and stock trading that apply to SSFs
*Specific trading strategies, systems, and methods
*What works-and what doesn’t
*How to assess risks and rewards
Because SSFs don’t fit easily into either securities or futures categories, they are regulated by both the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). These agencies soon will require continuing professional education on SSFs, for which this book can be a valuable tool.

With the markets so stagnant, traders seeking new sources for profit potential have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Single Stock Futures (SSFs), which allow the trading of futures on individual stocks. Traded in overseas markets for years - SSFs are a new phenomenon in the U.S. This hybrid product of the equity and futures worlds can offer huge opportunity to investors - but they can also be fairly complex. Expertise in both the fundamentals of futures trading and the specific nuances of SSFs is needed to make the most of them. Now, two new titles from the legendary Jake Bernstein provide every trader with the training and techniques needed to not only benefit from SSFs - but continue to prosper in today's tough markets.
How to Trade the New Single Stock Futures adds another bestselling book to Bernstein's prolific body of work - which includes over 30 books, 6 newsletters and numerous magazine articles and interviews. In his trademark style, Bernstein provides a thorough, easy-to-follow guide that explains every aspect of trading SSFs in the real world. Whether you're an experienced investor or just getting started - this book should be your first stop on the exciting SSF journey. Bernstein gives a comprehensive overview of SSFs, then quickly cuts to the core, covering …
* The essential factors of futures & stock trading that apply to SSFs
• The top trading strategies, systems, and methods for sustained SSF success
• What works - and what doesn't
• How to assess risks and rewards, tax implications and much more.
Because SSFs don't fit easily into a single category, they are regulated by both the SEC and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Both agencies will soon require professional education on these instruments - and Bernstein's book is the perfect place to get the training you need from one of the most respected experts in the industry.
The proof is in the patterns - and so are the trading profits - as Bernstein has long counseled traders. Spotting Price Swings & Seasonal Patterns: Techniques for Precisely Timing Major Market Moves is a new video workshop that reveals Bernstein's favorite, most effective and most consistently successful pattern strategies that he's developed over decades. Kicking off with his personal favorite - a high-yielding pattern for trading S&P futures on Monday based on price action from Friday - this excellent 90 minute workshop reveals everything from precise entry and exit methods, to tips for identifying new trends in every time frame (ideal for short and long-term players alike), and a key method for using moving averages with price patterns. Thorough, fast-paced - even funny - this presentation is so persuasive it had one professional trader bemoan the fact that “Bernstein's approach is so simple, yet so powerful, I wish I had it years ago.”
Individually - or taken together - these two titles combine the insights and experience of a renowned and respected trading great, with the applications and techniques that can directly be used for today's tough trading realities. It's the best of both world's - and every trader can, once again, benefit from Bernstein's amazing investment acumen.
