What are Micro Futures?
Micro Futures allow investors to trade in the stock market at large. They are priced that investors can avoid exorbitant amounts of risk on individual strategies and stop “putting their eggs all in one basket” so to speak. They exist to help ordinary investors be able to afford trading futures on major market indexes – expanding the playing field of trading as a whole.
Key Micro Futures Facts:
We are rolling out our first ever Micro Futures Portfolio offered to the general public.
1- Opportunity to diversify a traditional portfolio with an alternative investment portfolio for a very reasonable small investment.
2- The Micro Portfolio is composed of five different markets and six systems with different logics and time frames. Specifically, there are five day-trading systems (ES, NQ, GC, YM, and RTY) and one swing system (NQ).
3- Systems are built and tested for robustness by a professional.
4- They run on the servers of a regulated broker for the best execution and are in auto-execution.
5- The CME currently offers Micro Futures on the following markets: Gold (the first Micro) -Silver – ES (S&P) –NQ (Nasdaq)-YM (DOW Jones) -RTY (Russell 2000)- Euro-(Euro Currency)- Yen (Japanese Yen) plus a few other contracts but the above are the most liquid and better suited for trading at this moment.
Why Micro Futures are the Ideal Instrument for Small Account Diversification:
There are several reasons to consider adding Micro Futures trading to your strategy portfolio. Check them out below!
1- Smaller margins. Micro Futures contracts are 1/10th the size of a full futures contract. That means margins are 90% lower! This allows you to cover multiple markets with a relatively low account balance.
2- Multiple markets. Since the margin requirements are low, you are able to cover several key markets. This reduces overall account risk.
3- Non–correlated markets. Prices on stocks, commodities, currencies, and interest rates move in different ways. When you trade non-correlated markets, your equity curve is smoother.
4- Hedging advantages. Positions in stocks and equity options are subject to losses when the market moves against you. Futures trading provides a hedge against this kind of adverse move.
