Index futures are a type of futures contract which are used to trade stock indices such as the Dow Jones, NASDAQ 100 and ASX 200. Participants agree to trade a stock market index at a specified price and on a set date. As there is no physical underlying asset, index futures are settled in cash. As a result they may be displayed differently i.e the ASX 200 is often displayed as the AUS 200.
