    WHAT ARE EMINI FUTURES?

    Emini futures contracts, known as eminis, are simply scaled down versions of the larger "full size" contracts they emulate. Emini futures contracts are relatively new to the trading scene having only been around since 1997.

    Emini trading was introduced to the markets by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (NASDAQ:CME) with the creation of the S&P 500 Emini Futures Contract. This product was created to provide traders with an affordable method of trading the stock indices. The value of the original "large S&P Contract" became so expensive that retail traders and even smaller institutions were no longer able to afford it. At 1/5th the size of the larger contract, the S&P 500 Emini has become not only cost effective for all traders, it is now the single most popular trading vehicle in the world.

    WHAT IS THE COST?

    Intra-day margins for the S&P, Dow, Nasdaq and Russell, are as low as $500 per contract. With the S&P trading at $1,600.00, purchasing one emini futures contract gives you control of $80,000.00 in equity. The formula is: 'Current Price X 50 = Value'. It is easy to see why there is such great demand for these products from both retail and institutional investors alike. The low barrier to entry makes getting started as an emini futures trader, relatively easy.

    HOW DO I LEARN?

    Learn to trade the S&P 500 Emini Futures via online classroom training with a recognized emini trading school where classes are taught by professional e-mini traders in live markets. The S&P 500 has become one of the most popular trading vehicles worldwide, due to:

    • Affordability - intraday margins as low as $500 per contract
    • Leverage - control over $80k of equity for $500 at current prices
    • Liquidity - daily volume between 1.5m and 2.5m contracts
    • Accessibility - available through all futures brokers and select equity brokers
    • Simplicity - learn to trade one instrument vs. 100's or 1,000's
    WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?

    No pre-requisites. Suitable for both novice and advanced traders. Trading experience in other fields i.e.; stocks, bonds, exchange traded funds, forex, precious metals, energy, grains - are fully transferable. You will need a trading platform with simulator and your own emini charts. (read more)
