CME Group is going to launch a contract based on the Non Farm Payroll Number. Per the site... "These plain vanilla contracts are based on the monthly U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report usually released on the first Friday of each month that measures employment health. NFP futures and options are a transparent, straightforward and accessible way for you to gain direct exposure to the government labor number or to offset unexpected financial market moves that often occur when this number comes out." The price will be $25 x the change over the previous figure that was released. Options will be listed as well. This will be a very interesting contract to speculate on and for bigger traders to hedge possible "bad numbers" that might come out.
