As of today, November 25, two new international futures index contracts will be traded on B3: Nikkei Stock Average (Nikkei 225) and S&P Merval. This is yet another opportunity for investors seeking exposure to international markets without the need to access and operate in the offshore market, and thus add another possibility for portfolio diversification.

Today B3 already offers two futures contracts on a foreign stock index – the S&P 500. The launch of Nikkei 225 and S&P Merval reinforces B3's commitment to developing the market and expanding business opportunities together with its customers.
