If I buy any amount of contracts in any firm and lets say it goes up and down over the years and eventually after 5 years the underlying share went up. is it wise to hold single stock futures for a long time like you would the underlying stock? Or is there an interest cost which will hammer your profits? thanks
SSF contracts are time-based, so they expire with relatively short times for a 5 year investments, however, you can rollover, but it is my understanding that you will pay a brokerage cost each time it rolls over, which for a 5 year time, could be approx. 10 times.
