Predict Where the Markets Will Close: Event Contracts Have Arrived

Welcome to a brand-new way to play daily market action. You can now place predictions on price moves across the top 10 futures markets through a new app from NinjaTrader & Tradovate.

Predict, Play & Win with Event Contracts

Event contracts from CME Group make it easier than ever to participate in the global financial markets with all the benefits of trading futures in a centralized and regulated marketplace. Place price move predictions on some of the world’s most active markets, like the E-mini S&P, E-mini Nasdaq, Gold, Oil, and more.

How Do I Make a Prediction?

Choose from a selection of markets across multiple categories including Metals, Energies, Indexes, and Currencies. Select a closing price for that day, and then predict whether the actual close will be above or below your selected closing price.

Let’s say Oil is currently at $85. Will it finish above $85? Predict Yes, or No? That’s all there is to it.

Watch the short video for a step-by-step guide on how to place predictions.

So, How Much Can I Win or Lose?

Each event contract delivers a $20 payout for a correct prediction while the amount required to purchase a contract varies based on the likelihood of success. Incorrect predictions have a $0 payout which means your cost in these cases would be the amount you paid to make the prediction. *

In the “Image 1” example below, you can see an available prediction for the E-Mini S&P 500: “Will it end above 3955.00?” The bid price is close to the current price, so a “Yes” or “No” selection has the same cost. “Image 2” shows a potential profit of $10.25 with a correct prediction paying $20 per contract.

And remember, the risk is limited to the cost of the prediction. So, just choose a target closing price, decide “Yes” or “No” and win $20 for each correct prediction*.
