E-minis were launched in the late 1990s when the values of the major indices got too large for the average trader. Index futures contracts allow investors to buy or sell a financial index today to be settled at a date in the future. The CME Group launched micro e-mini contracts for four major indices on May 6, 2019. S&P 500, Russell 2000, Dow Jones 30 and Nasdaq 100 indices. Providing trading to retail traders at a much lower cost than the existing e-mini futures.
