Welcome to a whole new way to trade global futures markets
Event contracts will offer the most intuitive, straightforward way yet to access 10 of the world’s most important futures markets. Short-term, limited-risk contracts that streamline how you can take part in benchmark markets. Get ready for a new way to add CME Group futures products to your portfolio.
Event contracts will provide a way to express your view on where the price of CME Group futures contracts will close.
Trade predictions on prices of energy futures used every day for transportation and heat.
Trade predictions on prices for futures on four leading indices of U.S. stock market performance.
Trade predictions on prices for the two most actively traded precious metals futures and a widely used base metal future.
Trade predictions on the price of the futures product for one of the world’s most actively traded currency pairs.
Take a position on daily price predictions
Express your view on whether the price of key futures markets will move up or down by the end of each day's trading session. You will be presented with a menu of short-term price predictions by product. To participate, just choose a side on a given prediction.
Access smaller sized contracts
You don’t need a big investment to gain access to major futures markets. The cost to enter a trade is set low, with event contracts priced in U.S. dollars and cents between $0.25 to $19.75 per trade. You can buy one contract or multiple contracts at once.
Know what you will make or lose
Take a position knowing what your max profit or loss could be at expiration. The price you pay per contract is the most you can lose per trade and will be clearly displayed upfront (as will the max profit you can earn if correct).**
**Less applicable fees and commissions
Limit risk exposure
Event contracts are short-term positions good for that trading day only, and they will expire at market close.
Event contracts are smaller-sized, daily expiring products that allow you to trade on your knowledge of futures on benchmark equity index, energy, metals, and foreign currency futures markets with risk limited to the amount of the trade.
You can trade event contracts through one of our participating brokerage firms. Check back for updates on which brokers will be offering event contracts at launch.
Each trade order must have a minimum of one event contract. The maximum number of event contracts you can place in a single order is 250.
