Event Contracts

Coming to the CME

On Sunday, September 18th, the CME’s Event Contracts will be available for trading, providing traders with a whole new opportunity to trade the global futures markets.  The Event Contracts will offer a straightforward way to access a handful of the world’s most important futures markets.  Offering smaller-sized, daily expiring products will allow investors to trade using their knowledge of the futures benchmark equity index, energy, metals, and foreign currency futures markets with risk limited to the amount of the trade.

Will the market settle above or below a certain price by the end of the day?

Yes or No?

It really is that simple!  Open an account at Edge Clear and trade Event Contracts as a Yes or No answer. The contracts provide a simple way for you to test your views on the global market’s daily settlements.

They focus on the daily price movements of an underlying market.  Investors now have a way to express opinions on daily price action without having to manage your position intraday.

“Retail investors have become increasingly savvy about their investment decisions and are actively seeking hands-on trading opportunities in new markets,” said Terry Duffy, CME Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Our new Event Contracts will provide this dynamic retail investing crowd a simpler, lower-cost way to participate in some of the world’s most recognized markets – many of which they interact with every day.”
