NinjaTrader launched CME Group’s new event contracts on mobile

In Q3 2022, NinjaTrader introduced a mobile trading experience, custom-built for the new event contracts launched by CME Group for the retail audience.

CME’s Event Contracts has officially debuted, providing investors with a straightforward way to access a handful of the world’s top futures markets. Offering smaller-sized, daily expiring products will allow investors to predict the daily closing price of up to 10 of the world’s most popular financial and commodities markets.

In a statement, the US-based software provider highlighted the apparent benefits of these new daily options on futures contracts. Among other things, it offers short-term trading opportunities for individuals seeking to take a position on daily price moves using smaller-value trades.

Specifically, each contract requires a commitment ranging from as little as $0.25 to a maximum of $20, with a successful trade resulting in a $20 payout. Similar to options trading, participants have pre-defined risk as they can’t lose more than they invested, and results are available immediately at the market close.
