NEW! E-mini CNX Nifty Index Futures

Access the burgeoning Indian equity market

E-mini Nifty 50 Index futures – now with improved efficiency

Consisting of the 50 largest and most liquid blue-chip Indian companies on the National Stock Exchange of India (NSE), the Nifty 50 Index is designed to be a true reflection of India’s equity market, serving the information and trading needs of interested investors, as well as index fund and index derivatives providers.

“India remains a country of enormous promise,” writes Erik Norland, Senior Economist at CME Group, in a recent article India: The Next China? Despite obstacles, “inflation has come down and India has thus far avoided the downturn hitting Russia, Brazil and other commodity-producing countries. Moreover, India’s relatively lower level of private sector debt and comparatively faster growing population may lead it to outperform China, which has dominated growth among emerging economies.”
