Ever had a good stock get hammered by a bearish market? Most traders probably realize by now that moves in the S&P 500 or Nasdaq-100 sometimes matter a lot more than their individual holdings. Do you know about the new tool to manage that kind of broader market risk? CME just launched Micro E-mini futures contracts, letting you quickly take long or short positions on the key indexes.
Micros are the biggest thing in the market now. At just one/tenth the size of the regular E-mini contract – it has never been easier to get started trading futures. You can go long or short markets like the S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 with as little as $175 of day-trading margin per contract. Get all the same benefits of the normal sized contract like trading around the clock all with TradeStation’s award-winning* platform, low commissions and outstanding service and education.
Our low commission rates on these contracts are only about 30% of the standard size futures commission. You can trade for as low as .50-cents per contract, per side for single-tier pricing or for as low as .20-cents per contract, per side on our tiered pricing plan. View full pricing details.
