E-Mini S&P 500 Futures

The CME provides a fully electronic futures contract that is 1/5 the size of the standard contract. With more than one million contracts traded per day it is one of the most highly traded futures contracts in the world. Some clients may request to be on a 25% margin. Please note the rollover date for the large S&P contract shows up on some platforms one day after the rollover for the Emini S&P making that day a Friday instead of a Thursday. This isn't right, but thats how they elect to do it.
