Control a Higher Contract Value with Less Capital through Leverage*

Futures contracts provide significantly more buying power than stocks, enabling you to control large contract values with a smaller amount of capital.
* Leverage also increases the risk associated with futures trading and only risk capital should be used to trade.

Short Sell Without Restriction

When short-selling stocks, you pay interest, and sometimes you have to wait for an uptick and that's only if the stock is available to short. With futures, short selling futures is easy, simply sell a contract! Always available. No interest. No uptick rule.
