CME Group's plans for a U.K. exchange go beyond just currencies as it also hopes to establish interest rate trading there. That would obviously be direct competition to Liffe (NYX), and its slate of gilts, short-sterling, and Euribor futures (editor: from ease of use of websites, CME wins).

  • I think the editor is correct in his/her assessment of the website of the CME. The website provides much needed information for the CME customers and users. The Cme should be considered a tech company when one factors in the powerful globex trading platform. Globex was developed by the members of the CME for the trading community of the CME. I am proud to have supported and been a member of the CME at the time of the development of Globex (and still am a proud shareholder of the CME). The CME has always tapped the rich resource of its members and the users of its products to continuously present a trader friendly platform.
    The CME platform for trading is green, making it easier for my companys' (Burke Futures Group, LLC) salesmen to offer direct market access to its customers, whether a commodity trading advisor,proprietary trading firm, or an individual trader.
    As I believe, the whole world expects inflation to soar in the upcoming years, the need for commodities to be part of a well balanced portfolio will become paramount in the financial community. In order to take advantage of this inflation expectation, a prudent money/portfolio manager needs to be proactive and have an account open,funded and ready to allocate to inflation sensitive financial instruments.
    The CME Group is uniquely positioned for the 'new normal' portfolio environment we find ourselves in today and for the futures.
    My disclaimer is that, I put my money where my mouth is and own shares of CME Group. I also use and endorse the products of the CME as well as other commodity exchanges. There is no better time for the futures than the present.
