CME launches futures education Web site

26 February 2014  |  1416 views  |  0 Source: CME

CME Group, the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, announced today that it has launched FuturesFundamentals.com, an innovative educational website to help explain the role of futures markets in everyday life.

With easy-to-understand content that everyone from students to experienced market participants will find useful, FuturesFundamentals.com takes investing concepts like futures, hedging and speculating and shows how they play an essential role in the world around us. The site incorporates interactive elements like video and quizzes, as well as a host of infographics designed to simplify complex market topics. The goal of the site is to make financial education an engaging experience for anyone, regardless of how well versed they are in the world of finance.

"Over the past few years, we have seen a real need for information about how people and businesses manage risk, and how that risk impacts people's everyday lives," said Anita Liskey, CME Group Managing Director, Corporate Marketing & Communications. "Our goal for this site is to be a go-to resource on the futures industry, and why futures and options matter - whether you're a novice on Main Street or an expert on Wall Street."

Highlights of the site can be viewed in a brief video and at FuturesFundamentals.com.

Futuresfundamentals.com provides information on the derivatives industry as a whole, and is the latest example of the company's efforts to provide risk management education to the general public, as well as current and potential customers. For example, last year CME Group embarked on a partnership with the National 4-H Council to bring a Commodity Carnival game to over 130 state and county fairs, reaching 50,000 fairgoers with information about managing risk in agriculture. CME Group is also currently in the middle of its annual CME Group Trading Challenge, which last year attracted 1,500 graduate and undergraduate students from 25 different countries to learn more about futures trading.
