S&P 500 Index Futures

  • The product

    The S&P 500 Index Future is a product of the partnership between B3 and CME Group and resembles the E-mini S&P 500 Futures Contract traded on the CME Group with the same size and months of maturity. The product complemented the portfolio of B3 index derivatives with one more option indexed in shares of a foreign market.
    This derivative allows an investor to trade today the future price expectation for the stock portfolio represented by the S&P 500 Index - one of the most representative indices in the global financial market.

    The S&P 500 Index, calculated and released by Standard & Poor's, aims to reflect a diversified blue chip stock portfolio of 500 leading US companies in key economic sectors (technology, finance, healthcare, consumer, industry, materials and utilities). As a result, the index also becomes a general indicator of the US stock market as the market value of the shares covered by the index equals approximately 80% of the market capitalization of the companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange ( NYSE).
