Executive Chairman and CEO

The Small Exchange announced plans to launch its first options contract on Small Precious Metals Product (SPRE) index futures on January 25, 2022. I interviewed Small Exchange CEO Donnie Roberts about the new product, Small Exchange’s plans for future options contracts, and the impending deal for the exchange to be acquired by Crypto.com. 

The SPRE index is made up of gold, silver and platinum prices, with the largest weighting on gold, then silver, Roberts said. The new options contracts will be cleared at the OCC, same as The Small Exchange’s futures contracts.

Roberts said they have two market makers in place for the new options contracts, and the exchange and OCC have done six months of testing to prepare for the launch.

Here is my interview with Donnie Roberts of the Small Exchange.

Lunch with the New CME Chairman Terrence Duffy

Before the CME went public in 2002, there was a change in leadership at the top. Terry Duffy ran for the job of chairman of the board against the incumbent, Scott Gordon. I was a fan of Gordon’s and then CME  CEO Jim McNulty. McNulty was one of the reasons I started the John Lothian Newsletter. He had helped me find a job when I first graduated from Purdue University. He was for a short time one of my mentors. But then I started my career and he started traveling the world as an investment banker and I lost track of him.
