Day Trading Futures vs. Day Trading Stocks

No Downtick Rule

With Futures there are NO downtick and/or short sale rules as found in daytrading equities. No boxing of positions and no bullets. You can instantly short anytime at any price.

Tax Advantage

Commodities are taxed differently than securities. The net gain or loss from trading commodities is reported on schedule D (capital gains and losses); 60 % of the amount is taxed as a long-term capital gain and 40% is taxed as a short-term capital gain. Active Securities Traders have all gains taxed as short term vs. commodities traders who have the above treatment.

24 Hour Market Access

With Electronic Screen traded E-Mini Contracts you can access the market during regular equity trading hours, after hours and during the night. This makes trading news easier as many news events happen after 3:00 pm and late in the afternoons.

More Leverage

You can control more exposure with the same capital than in equities.

Lower Cost Commissions It costs an average of $5-$9 per ticket to actively trade equities, compared with futures where it is $1.26 to $2.00 per ticket – less than half the price. 

The Catch?

They can be more risky than equities.

Trading the E-Mini futures contracts can be more exciting and faster paced than traditional equity markets day trading. Your emotional swings can be more excessive with futures because they are so much more liquid than the equity markets that you may be used to trading. And you have more leverage to play with. These products are for professionals only. Please read carefully the risk disclosure forms on this site and all of the risk disclosure forms found in your account paperwork before considering trading futures.

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below.  No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.  In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program.

One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight.  In addition, hypothetical trading does no involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading.  For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results.  There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.
