What Do You Know About stock futures?
Stock futures are one of the oldest forms of investment, used to speculate on price movements in the stock market. Stock futures were introduced in 1864, and have now become one of the most common forms of investment. There are two main types of stock futures contracts: options and futures. Options are contracts that give the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a particular stock at a specified price (the strike price) on a specified date in the future.
This gives the buyer the ability to speculate on whether the price of the stock will rise or fall. Futures contracts, however, give the buyer the obligation to buy or sell a particular stock at a specified price on a specified date.
