Is there Market Maker for eminis?

    Electronic order matching does not always eliminate the need to have MM presence.

    EMMs (Electronic Market makers) are often used to provide liquidity mainly for new contracts until volume grows. I believe the CBOT mini sized Dow contract used or still uses EMMs.

  2. There are CME members that are always on the bid/offer if that's what you mean by market maker. They do not have any obligation to provide liquidity or fill orders like a NYSE or NASDAQ mm would have.
