Futures on IBEX 35®

UNDERLYING ASSET IBEX 35 Index.
INDEX DESCRIPTION The IBEX 35 Index is a capitalization-weighted index comprising the 35 most liquid Spanish stocks traded in the Continuous Market.
MULTIPLIER 10 Euros. The IBEX 35 Index must be multiplied by 10 Euros in order to obtain the contract size. Therefore each index point is worth 10 Euros.
CONTRACT SIZE The IBEX 35 Index times the Multiplier.
The nominal value of the contract will be obtained by multiplying the price of the IBEX 35 Future times the multiplier. Therefore an IBEX 35® Future contract at a price of 10.000 points would have a nominal value of: 10.000 x 10 = 100.000 Euros.
PRICE QUOTATION In whole Index points with a minimum fluctuation set according to the quotation of the underlying asset and/or the Market practice, which will be established by Circular. The minimum fluctuation might be different in pre-arranged trades between Members.
MAXIMUM PRICE FLUCTUTATION None.
