CME Group Options on Micro Futures in Desktop

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.
