Chicago Mercantile Exchange

From Traderpedia

(Redirected from CME)
An exchange where financial futures, commodity futures, foreign currency futures and futures options are traded.

The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) was founded in 1898 as a not-for-profit corporation. In November 2000, CME became the first U.S. financial exchange to demutualize and become a shareholder-owned corporation.

CME is the world's second-largest exchange for futures and options on futures and the largest in the U.S. Trading involves mostly futures on interest rates, currency, equities, stock indices and a small amount on agricultural products.
