Trade a slice of the most liquid equity index futures

Equity index contracts are among the most liquid, actively traded futures contracts available. Micro E-mini futures provide the same benefits of E-mini futures, in a smaller-sized contract.

Precisely scale index exposure up or down

Add more granularity to your trading and risk-management strategies by using Micro E-mini futures to fine-tune your index exposure.

Versatility to manage your positions

Micro E-mini Equity futures can be converted easily into a classic E-mini futures position. That gives you more flexibility for managing positions as market conditions change.

Use leverage for greater efficiency and exposure

Control a large contract value with a small amount of capital and no expense ratios. Add greater upside with potentially lower trading costs versus a basket of equities or ETFs*.

* The high degree of leverage (gearing) that is often obtainable in futures trading because the small margin requirements can work against you as well as for you. Leverage (gearing) can lead to large losses as well as gains.
