"The Small Exchange, a futures exchange offering smaller, simpler products aimed toward retail customers, has launched Small Treasury Yield (S10Y) futures - the first product to afford customers the ability to trade treasury futures in yield not price. S10Y follows the 10-Year U.S. Treasury Yield, the most quoted interest rate in the US. Small Treasury Yield futures simplify variables in an otherwise complex asset class down to a single, succinct interest rate so traders can skip the calculations that translate yield to price. S10Y gives easy access to trade interest rates at their lowest levels in the history of Treasuries, creating a simple trade on the return to normal or fall to negative, where many global rates already are." reports Business Wire.

“We believe the Small 10YR US Treasury Yield is a true differentiator in the futures space, and nothing like this is available for traders in the equity or ETF world,” said Don Roberts, the Small Exchange President and CEO. “Our whole mission is to continue creating new products for investors that enable more opportunities within the futures marketplace. We wouldn’t be able to do this without market participants like Interactive Brokers and MarketAxess.”

Interactive Brokers also chimed in, saying “Interactive Brokers focuses on providing our clients with superior pricing, advanced technology and breadth of product around the globe,” said Interactive Brokers CEO Milan Galik. “We serve more than a million clients worldwide and strive to provide them with innovative products. We look forward to offering them access to the Small Exchange’s new interest rate future.”

The Small Exchange is making futures markets more accessible to more people with small, standard, and simple products that combine the best of futures and stocks.
