Micro-sized treasuries, major possibilities
Directly references a well-known US Treasury market metric: yields of recently auctioned (or, on the run) Treasury securities, the most followed issues within each tenor.
Trade the four most watched points on the curve: 2-Year Notes, 5-Year Notes, 10-Year Notes, and 30-Year Bonds, anchored by BrokerTec US Treasury benchmarks.
All four contracts are sized at a constant basis point value of $10/basis point of yield (0.01%), making it easier to spread trade. Take positions on the rate’s direction or the yield curve’s shape.
Small BPV enables a low-cost alternative to other interest rate offerings and brings more flexibility to how active traders manage interest rate exposure.
