Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Equity Index Futures at JPX

This year marks the 35th anniversary of equity index futures trading at JPX.

On September 3, 1988, trading of Nikkei 225 Futures and TOPIX Futures began on the former Osaka Securities Exchange and the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

With the launch of the night session in 2007 and holiday trading in 2022, the equity index futures market at Japan Exchange Group, Inc. (JPX) has grown to become one of the world’s leading derivatives markets, attracting a wide range of participants including overseas and retail investors.

JPX will continue to contribute to the development of Japan’s financial market through the expansion of the derivatives market.

Comments from the President & CEO

I am pleased to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the launch of equity index futures at JPX. I would also like to express my deepest gratitude to all investors and related parties for their support and cooperation in helping us reach this milestone.

Since the launch of Nikkei 225 Futures and TOPIX Futures, the JPX equity index futures market has been trusted by many investors and provided today’s society with important tools such as risk hedging and price discovery. In addition to the listing of Nikkei 225 mini contracts in 2006, Nikkei 225 micro Futures were listed together with Nikkei 225 mini Options in May of this year, thereby providing products to meet the recent needs of investors for small-lot trading.

We at JPX will continue to strive to be investors’ exchange of choice, operate a market that is trusted by all, and provide the best possible service to meet the needs of the times and investors.
