Snowfall Futures and Options
 

Manage Your Winter Weather Risk

Meteorologists are calling for a snow-filled winter in the Great Lakes area and Northeastern United States. Are you prepared? CME Snowfall futures and options on futures enable market participants to more effectively manage the risk associated with snowfall exposure. Our Snowfall product suite includes six different products in ten locations, providing you with even more ways to prepare for winter weather.

How Snowfall Contracts Work
The CME Snowfall Index provides average monthly snowfall information for
designated cities in the United States. People who wish to trade snowfall futures
or options determine what amount of snowfall would be detrimental to their
businesses and take futures or options positions based on that determination.
