*The September (U) 2010 E-micro Forex futures contracts are cash settled. However, starting with the December (Z) 2010 contract, CME FX will be migrating the E-micro Forex futures contracts from being cash settled to physically delivered. This will enable active traders to carry larger positions in the E-micros and easily offset them with our standard size FX contracts – potentially generating more liquidity and tighter spreads in the E-micro Forex futures contracts.
