The OneChicago calculator allows an investor to easily compare the potential advantages of trading Single Stock Futures versus the underlying equity. Customize the input to reflect your own investment criteria, including:
· the size of the transaction
· the length of the holding period
· the portion of the position that will be financed
· the interest rate for either the debit balance (borrowing funds) or the credit balance (lending funds)
In the results area, hold your mouse pointer over each column label for a detailed explanation of how the numbers were derived, and over each return to see the actual calculation.
