Japenese yen futures and options on futures contracts traded at CME 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. Exercised options contracts are settled by the delivery of futures contracts.
Financial institutions, investment managers, corporations and private investors can use Japenese yen futures and options to manage the risks associated with currency rate fluctuation and to take advantage of profit opportunities stemming from changes in currency rates.
