Helping the World Advance: CME Group comprises four Designated Contract Markets (DCMs). Further information on each exchange’s rules and product listings can be found by clicking on the links to CMECBOTNYMEX and COMEX.

Futures trading is not suitable for all investors, and involves risk of loss. Futures are a leverage instrument, and because only a percentage of a contract’s value is required to trade, it is possible to lose more than the amount of money initially deposited for a futures product.
