Futures Contracts Resources
Discussion Participation Scoring Guide.
Four factors affect the value of a futures contract on a stock index—three of which are:
The current price of the stock index.
The time remaining until the contract maturity date.
The dividends of the stock index.
Identify the fourth factor, and explain how and why changes in this factor affect the value of the futures contract.
Note: This is a CFA Exam Level 2 question.
Review the posts of at least two other learners and answer the following questions, providing explanations as needed:
How does the interest rate environment impact the futures market?
Is the futures market isolated from essential time value of money elements?
Would the same elements that affect futures markets impact derivatives markets also?
