Harness the potential of the dividend market

Nasdaq-100 Annual Dividend Index futures provide you with efficient tools to hedge or express a view on the U.S. dividend market, regardless of the price movement of the benchmark indices. The Annual Nasdaq-100 Dividend Index tracks the accumulation of dividends on an annual basis and resets to zero after the expiration of the leading December contract. The observation period is the prior December contract expiration date plus one trading day, through the contract’s December expiration date.
