Hedge Fund Role In Futures Speaks Volumes
Two of the largest futures exchanges in the country know a good thing when they see it, which is why both the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Chicago Board of Trade are ramping up efforts to attract hedge funds.
CME and CBOT are doing their best to make sure the money just keeps on coming, and so the former has established a team dedicated to building the stable of hedge fund customers through membership, while the latter offers incentives aimed at enticing more hedge fund trades. "Hedge funds are a very important customer group to the CBOT and the liquidity they provide plays a major role in the marketplace," an exchange spokesman told DJN. "We value hedge funds as a customer and we will continue to actively market the exchanges services to them."
