TradeStation® Securities Supports Trading of Micro Copper Futures from CME Group Starting on Day One

The new micro metals product offers TradeStation Securities clients lower margin requirements, diversification, and flexibility.

PLANTATION, Fla., May 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- TradeStation Securities, Inc. ("TradeStation Securities"), an award-winning*, self-clearing online brokerage for trading stocks, ETFs, options, and futures, now offers its clients the ability to trade Micro Copper Futures from CME Group. With Micro Copper Futures, TradeStation Securities continues to expand its suite of over 450 futures and futures options products. TradeStation Securities has continued to see micro products grow in popularity with more retail clients trading in the futures market.

"We're excited to offer a new micro metals futures product to meet the needs of our customers while continuing our longstanding relationship with CME Group," said John Bartleman, President and Chief Executive Officer of TradeStation Securities' parent company, TradeStation Group, Inc. Mr. Bartleman added, "Over the past few years, we've seen a growing interest in futures, especially from younger investors who are becoming more advanced and educated on the market."

These micro-sized futures will provide a variety of market participants, from institutions to sophisticated individual traders, with greater access to the transparency and liquidity of CME Group's Copper markets. Micro products have lower margin requirements, due to their smaller notional size, making them more accessible to retail traders looking for diversification and flexibility as they trade commodity futures. Micro Copper Futures will be one-tenth the size of a standard-sized copper futures contract and will be cash-settled.

Clients can trade Micro Copper Futures contracts through the TradeStation desktop platform, web, and mobile applications which provide advanced visualization and powerful analysis tools. Whichever way clients choose to trade, they'll have access to educational resources, free-market data, and experienced client support, including trade-desk specialists.

In addition to offering the new Micro Copper Futures product, TradeStation Securities is offering a pricing promotion cutting per-contract futures fees in half when qualifying customers open an account between now and July 31, 2022, and use the code: FUTRAFZT.**
