Micro FX futures are smaller-sized contracts you can trade to express your opinion on the value of major currencies against the US dollar. Capture the potential of fast-paced FX trading, offering liquid markets and full pricing transparency with the safety and security of no counterparty or execution risk.
CME Group’s Micro FX futures lets you tap into the same benefits of the larger, liquid futures used by professional FX traders for a fraction of the initial up-front margin.
Act as market-moving world news and events unfold. Get nearly 24-hour trading, pay no management fee, go short as easy as you go long, and more.
Micro FX futures contracts are backed by CME Clearing, so you don’t have to worry about the other side of the trade falling through. Every CME FX trade is CFTC-regulated, supervised and backed by CME Market Regulation to ensure integrity.
Fast trade executions, confirmations, and straight through processing with no “last-look” – which means the price you see is the price you will trade.
Control a larger contract value with a smaller amount of money upfront – that’s the power of leverage inherent in futures.
Benefit from potential tax efficiencies, with the certainty of blended 60% long-term/40% short-term capital gain

In a market as large as foreign exchange, you can gain exposure from cash, CFD’s and futures. Yet, there are distinct differences and reasons why traders around the world choose the futures market – from the liquidity, to the leverage, the regulation and the transparent pricing.
|24-HOUR ACCESS?||But liquidity is highly fragmented globally|
|REGULATED, CENTRALIZED MARKETPLACE?||See same prices, quotes, trades as everyone else||Broker is lone counterparty||Trades are exposed to counterparty and execution risk|
|FULLY DISCLOSED FEES/FINANCING COSTS||All prices are built into the spread||Daily interest charged on open positions, plus can be a markup on long positions||Spreads often built into prices, varying margin/credit charges subject to counterparty|
|NEARLY 24-HOUR TRADING ACCESS|
|SAFETY & SECURITY||Trades are CFTC regulated, CME Market Reg supervised, CME Clearing backed and guaranteed with risk shared among clearing members||Broker is lone counterparty – exposed to higher counterparty risk|
|AVAILABILITY BY REGULATION||Available in over 150 countries||Banned in many countries including the US and Britain|
Pay as little as $0.50 / side no matter how much you trade. High volume traders qualify for even more savings with commissions as low as $0.10 / Side.
