Micro E-Mini Futures. Launching May 6th.
An expanded offering, a smaller-sized contract.
The CME Group just recently announced their plans to launch Micro E-Mini Futures contracts.
Micro E-Mini futures fit seamlessly within our current product suite and give all traders a simple way to access the equity index futures markets. At 1/10th the size of a classic E-Mini contract, Micro E-minis require less cash to enter the market with lower margins.
We plan to offer trading on the Micro E-Mini futures within the same week that trading initially launches (May 6th), including on the all-new Firetip X trading platform. We believe that offering Micro E-Mini futures will provide our customers with a new tool to hedge their equity or options exposure, while providing market access to those who haven’t been able to meet the margin requirements for some of the larger equity futures contracts.
