When something big happens, why wait? Nearly 24-hour trading means you can act fast to adjust as soon as markets move on global news.
Micro futures let you fine-tune your exposure and go short as easily as you can go long: no short-selling restrictions.
At a fraction of the size of their standard or E-mini counterparts, Micro futures carry a smaller margin requirement– often less than 5% of the contract value (vs. 50% margin for stocks or ETFs). More exposure, less capital.
Explore markets that you may have thought were out of reach: bitcoin, gold, a major equity index, a major currency. Add the benefits of diversification for lowering risk and increasing potential for rewards.
