Nasdaq Derivatives Markets offers exchange-traded forwards, futures and options on Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish and Danish stocks, as well as options and futures on the OMXS30 index (the 30 most traded Swedish stocks), the OMXC20CAP and OMXC25 index (the 20 and 25 most traded Danish stocks), the VINX30 index (the 30 most traded Nordic stocks) and the OMXO20 Index (the 20 most traded Norwegian Stocks).
Nasdaq Derivatives Markets also offers futures on OMXSB (Stockholm Benchmark index).
In addition to the above Nasdaq Derivatives Markets offers clearing of Flexible Derivatives and an On-Request Market.
Flexible Derivatives allow market participants to clear a wide variety of OTC-traded (over-the-counter) derivatives differing on one or more terms or conditions (e.g. underlying security, exercise price, expiration day or type of contract) from exchange and clearing listed instruments.
The “on request” market provides trading in forwards and options on single Finnish stocks. Within this market, not all stocks have automatic generation of new series with new strike prices, but are instead generated “on-request” by members. This method allows members to trade exchange-traded series on Finnish stocks with the possibility to set strike price and maturity.
