E-Mini

A futures contract in which the underlying asset is a small portion of an index future, which is a futures contract where the underlying asset is a stock index. For example, an e-mini may represent a fraction of an index future on the NASDAQ 100. E-minis are more affordable and easier to sell than standard index futures. However, they are still speculative investments and subject to the same risks as other futures. As with other index futures, they are settled in cash. They are traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
