Japanese Yen Futures Options Trading
Japanese yen futures contracts first started trading at CME in May 1972 as part of the International Monetary Market, a division of the Exchange. Options contracts began trading in 1986. Currently CME offers a forum for trading Japanese yen in its FX futures markets on its GLOBEX electronic platform.
Futures contracts are also traded in the Australian dollar/Japanese yen, Canadian dollar/Japanese yen, Euro FX/Japanese yen and Swiss franc/Japanese yen as part of cross rate currency futures.
CME trades Japanese yen futures and options on futures contracts that are designed to reflect changes in the U.S. dollar value of the yen. Futures contracts are quoted in U.S. dollars per yen, and call for physical delivery at expiration, which takes place on the third Wednesday of the contract month in the country of issuance at a bank designated by the Clearing House. Exercised options on futures contracts are settled by the delivery of futures contracts.
