Trade futures at a fraction of the cost with micro futures

Micro futures, including Micro WTI Crude Oil futures and Micro Bitcoin futures are now available. They provide a lower cost of entry with lower margin requirements, which may help you diversify your portfolio with greater flexibility.  If  you haven't traded futures before, they could be a way to break into the market without breaking the bank.  As a reminder, micro futures are not suitable for everyone and have the same risks as the classic contracts.
