FX Brochure for Institutional Investors

  • Topics: FX

CME Group created the first ever financial futures contracts in 1972 with the introduction of FX futures. The concept of FX futures was revolutionary, and gained immediate credibility through the endorsement of leading economists. More than $120 billion in FX futures and options flow through our FX markets every day, making CME Group the world’s largest regulated marketplace for FX trading and the second largest platform overall. When you trade on our exchange, you’ll be trading with a diverse universe of market participants. This diversity allows for a deep pool of liquidity in a variety of streams, that keep tight bid/offer spreads, especially in the most popular products – generally as small as a one-point spread in EUR/USD and one- to two-points in JPY/USD and GBP/USD. This brochure will explain the additional benefits traders gain by using these contracts.
