Meet Small Exchange, A 2020 Benzinga Global Fintech Awards Finalist

Benzinga will be holding its annual Benzinga Global Fintech Awards on Nov. 10, 2020. A day of dealmaking, networking, and recognition in the financial technology space.

In recognition of those disruptive innovators creating positive and diverse change within the financial services space, Benzinga presents Small Exchange, Inc.

About Small Exchange

Small Exchange, Inc. is bringing more traders to the futures market by offering appropriately sized futures products for investors to trade.

The big idea behind the Small Exchange is to make trading accessible to investors at all levels. They are making this possible by allowing you to trade products that pair the capital-efficiency of futures with the simplicity of trading stocks. 

Core Product Portfolio

With the Small Exchange, you are trading the Smalls. 

Since their products are smaller, they demand less of your money than the average stock or ETF. Traditional futures can fluctuate too fast for the everyday trader, sometimes moving by thousands of dollars a day. 

With the Smalls, this margin of change is much smaller. Daily moves are typically between either a few or couple hundred dollars at most.

The Smalls offer products that are small, standard, and simple.

  1. Small: By reducing the size of their products, investors can trade on a more accessible scale.
  2. Standard: The Small Exchange takes away the hours of studying trades by making all Smalls share the same tick size and expiration date.
  3. Simple: Their products are simple to understand and are holistic representations of financial markets.

Use Case, Recent Developments

A Small Exchange subscription provides you with a lifetime of reduced market data fees and exchange fees with no renewals necessary. 

Why is this helpful?

Well, exchange fees take a portion out of every trade you make. When you subscribe to the Small Exchange you can increase your odds of success even more by cutting those fees in half. 

Subscribers also receive zero market data fees for the first year following Small Exchanges’ launch (June 2020). After that, only Small Exchange subscribers will get discounted market data.

In addition, the company recently announced that a Small Exchange subscription will now also include weekly updates to advanced metrics and thorough commentary to help inform your Smalls trading.

Innovation Outlook

As a newly launched company, the Small Exchange is continuously innovating its product portfolio. 

The Small Exchange’s one simple goal is to bring more participants to the futures market by making products that are accessible and easy to understand.

“Truthfully, the Small Exchange has been a dream in progress for 20 years, over the last couple of years we have made that dream a reality, our next focus is to bring relevant products and capital efficiencies to revolutionize the trading markets for the individual investor of all account sizes,” said Donald Roberts, President & CEO of Small Exchange.
