About Derivatives Markets
OSE markets serve as venues for investors to trade derivatives products, such as Index Futures, Index Options, JGB Futures, Options on JGB Futures, and Single Stock Options. These products can be traded during the day and night sessions.
Index Futures and Index Options traded at OSE markets are based on domestic and foreign indices. Nikkei 225 Futures, Nikkei 225 mini, Nikkei 225 Options and TOPIX Futures, in particular, are the leading derivatives products in Japan.
Additionally, for JGB futures trading, price movements in 10-year JGB Futures serve as indicators of long-term interest rates in Japan due to its high liquidity.
To improve convenience for investors, OSE will continue to strengthen the competitiveness of our derivatives markets by introducing new products based on domestic and foreign indices and reviewing our trading rules.*
