Understanding Micro Contracts

Micro contracts are a new smaller-sized suite of futures contracts for four major indices: S&P 500, NASDAQ-100, Russell 2000, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average. These contracts allow traders a quick and cost-effective way to trade with four key indices.

All four of the Micro E-mini futures are 1/10 the size of their respective E-mini futures counterparts – allowing all traders futures exposure without the notional constraints of the larger contracts.

For example, while a single E -mini S&P 500 futures contract has a value of $50 times the agreed upon E-mini futures price – the Micro E-mini S&P 500 futures contract has a value of $5 times the agreed upon price. The Micro E-mini contract multiplier varies by product.

While both the Micro E-mini S&P 500 and Micro E-mini Russell 2000 have multipliers of $5, the Micro E-mini Nasdaq-100 has a $2 multiplier, and the Micro E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average has a 50-cent multiplier.
