CME Group Options on Micro Futures

The CME Group has added Options on Micro Futures to their product offerings. These contracts are 1/10 the size of the E-mini futures on the S&P 500, Nasdaq-100, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Russell 2000 indices. The benefit for you is the ability to participate in these markets with only having to have 10% of the margin in your account compared to the full size contracts.

CQG Product Specialist Matt Murray built a page, available as a downloadable PAC, as a starting point for trading Micro Futures and Options.
