Futures have amazingly low performance bond rates. But more importantly the quick pace of change is making futures far more attract than stocks for short term trading. Some things happening include:

Demutualization of futures exchanges

creation of electronic markets (globex, a/c/e, etc)

Proliferation of direct access platforms(ISVs')

Simplified execution.

High volume/highly volatile contracts.

rapidly falling commission rates

creation of many new contracts such as individual stocks, stock sectors, indices, etc.

Should make for interesting times ahead.
