As Asia is an important region for growth for CME, this year we have already launched two contracts with major significance for Asian market participants, CME E-mini MSCI EAFE futures and CME S&P Asia 50 futures. Next month we will further broaden our FX product line when we launch CME Korean Won futures.<br><br>CME Chinese Renminbi futures contract, CME Chinese Renminbi/Euro futures contract and CME Chinese Renminbi/Japanese Yen futures contract, as well as options on these futures, will trade exclusively on the CME Globex electronic trading platform. CME will continue to solicit additional market makers for this contract.
