Micro Equity Index
CME Group recently launched Micro E-mini futures contracts - 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 market participants an efficient and cost-effective way to gain exposure to 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.

Micro E-mini Equity futures can be converted easily into a classic E-mini futures position. That gives you more flexibility for managing positions as market conditions change.
Use leverage for greater efficiency and exposure
Control a large contract value with a small amount of capital and no expense ratios. Add greater upside with potentially lower trading costs versus a basket of equities or ETFs*.
Precisely scale index exposure up or down
Add more granularity to your trading and risk-management strategies by using Micro E-mini futures to fine-tune your index exposure.
* The high degree of leverage (gearing) that is often obtainable in futures trading because the small margin requirements can work against you as well as for you. Leverage (gearing) can lead to large losses as well as gains.
