TradeStation adds Micro WTI Crude Oil futures from CME to offering

TradeStation Securities, Inc, a part of Monex Group, now offers its futures clients the ability to trade Micro WTI Crude Oil futures contracts through CME Group.

CME Group has announced that Micro WTI Crude Oil futures will give traders of all sizes a smaller, more precise instrument for managing crude oil price exposure, and that at 1/10 the size of the benchmark WTI futures contract, Micro WTI Crude Oil futures offers the same robust transparency and price discovery of larger WTI futures with smaller margin requirements.

“TradeStation is proud to continue our strong relationship with CME Group through the launch of Micro WTI Crude Oil futures,” said John Bartleman, President of TradeStation Group, Inc., TradeStation’s parent company. “As a platform for retail and institutional investors, we’re excited to offer our clients access to U.S. crude at a lower barrier of entry. As day-one supporters of this new contract, we’re continuing to prioritize our clients’ access to the latest futures products and technology.”

TradeStation clients can now trade Micro WTI Crude Oil futures through the TradeStation desktop platform, web trading, mobile application, as well as the TradeStation FuturesPlus platform. Whichever way customers choose to trade, they’ll have access to TradeStation’s analysis tools, educational offerings and customer service.

“We are pleased TradeStation is facilitating trading in our new Micro WTI Crude Oil futures,” said Peter Keavey, Global Head of Energy at CME Group. “With these smaller sized contracts, a broader range of sophisticated traders will now be able to access the transparency and liquidity of our benchmark WTI futures. We look forward to working with TradeStation and other broker platforms to educate the investor community and provide more flexibility in accessing our markets.”
