E-mini futures: Key benefits


The main benefits of trading E-mini futures include:

  • You can trade E-mini S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures virtually 24 hours a day
  • It’s easy to go long or short based on your price outlook
  • You can trade both standard E-mini and Micro contracts

At 1/10th the size of standard contracts, Micro contracts for E-mini futures offer their own set of advantages for new traders, including:

  • Trading on a much smaller scale
  • Reduced financial commitment
  • Good entryway to get comfortable with trading

Micro-sized contracts for E-mini futures also provide advantages for more experienced traders, including:

  • Flexible trade sizing for more control over market exposure
  • Easily scale in and out of multi-contract positions (the vendor recommends two or more contracts)
