Micro Treasury Futures Surpass 30,000 Contracts Traded

Micro Treasury Futures

Launched just over a week ago, CME Group’s Micro Treasury Yield futures have traded over 30,000 contracts.

“We’re pleased with the early support we’ve seen from clients and market participants for our new Micro Treasury Yield futures contracts during their first week of trading,” said Agha Mirza, CME Group Global Head of Rates and OTC Products. “Micro Yield futures complement our robust suite of U.S. Treasury futures and options and are our first contracts to reference the yield of on-the-run Treasury securities. This means that market participants of all sizes who want to gain exposure to, or more precisely hedge against, U.S. Treasury auction issuance, now have a tool with growing liquidity to help them achieve those objectives.”

Top Reasons to Trade Micro Treasury Futures

  • Fine-Tune Your Exposure – Target opportunity and scale exposure to the Treasury marketplace with a small contract size.
  • Highly Leveraged Investment – Benefit from futures trading leverage to control a larger contract value with your capital. Financial leverage can result in losses greater than the initial margin and traders should be aware of the risks involved in trading futures.
  • Financial Efficiency – The small contract size and low margin requirements are ideal for those looking to reduce financial exposure. You can trade these contracts with NinjaTrader with intraday margins as low as $50.
  • Exact Hedging Opportunities – Add more flexibility for position management to your trading strategies using Micro contracts.
