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 having only been around since 1997.

Emini trading was introduced to the markets by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (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.

So if I trade 5 SP500 Emini Contracts is that the same as trading 1 full size S&P 500 open outcry pit traded contract? Other than size, are there any other differences I should be aware of?


Jul 8, 2013 at 19:29 | Unregistered CommenterMarc

Size is the major difference for the S&P 500 Emini Futures. For the cost of 1 full size pit traded open outcry contract, you get 5 emini contracts. This allows you to scale in and scale out of positions if that fits your trading system or trading strategy. Also, the E-mini is a 100% electronic market which means there are no market makers or manipulation to worry about. It truly creates a level playing field for retail traders and investors.

Don't you consider the fact that you can trade 24 hours on the CME Globex Platform a big difference and benefit as well? If you go long or short a open outcry pit traded contract you are stuck until the market opens the next day right? There's no way to exit a pit session contract on globex is there?


Jul 8, 2013 at 20:22 | Unregistered CommenterRom

Yes. 24 access via the CME Globex is certainly a huge plus for all traders, both emini traders and other futures and currency contracts as well. You are correct, you can not exit a trade you entered in the Pit on the Globex Electronic Exchange. However, you can hedge a losing position. Let's say for instance you are short in the Pit on the S&P 500 and the market begins to rally strongly on Globex.

You could simply go long the S&P Emini or even the Dow works nicely as a hedge on the S&P. Once the Pit opens, you still have to deal with the carnage there, but at least Globex gave you the opportunity to mitigate some of the losses. If I can be of further help, call 949-42-EMINI.
