Micro Forex(FX) Futures

Micro Forex(FX) Futures

Forex markets are the most liquid in the world.

George Soros famously made $1 billion in a single day betting against the British Pound in 1991. (An outlier performance by all means)

Yet, many retail traders and investors ignore this market entirely for a variety of reasons including:

  • Brokers who may trade against their clients
  • Some Jurisdictions with a “relaxed” regulatory environment
  • Over-the-counter nature of the market
  • Wide spreads
  • High initial margins

Forex Futures solve many of these problems.

Yet, they simply don’t offer enough flexibility for an average retail trader.

That’s why Forex micro futures was a game-changer.

Futures products are a unique derivative mechanism that traders and investors can use for both speculation and hedging. They employ leverage to control more of an asset than you could otherwise.

Dating back to the Dojima Rice Exchange in 1730, futures contracts lock in a specific price for a product, index, or basket of goods at some date in the future.

Currency futures are a derivative contract that follows a specific currency pair where one is the U.S. Dollar.

Unlike options contracts where the buyer has the right to execute the contract, futures come with an obligation.

That means physical assets like oil require the buyer to take delivery of the product, while index futures are cash-settled.

Currency futures are physically settled which means anyone holding those products at expiration will be required to take delivery of the currency product itself.

Futures products trade continuously from 6:00 P.M. EST on Sunday until 5:00 P.M. EST Friday with a one hour break from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM EST each day.
