InsideFutures Indices News
Indices futures contracts allow investors to lock in today’s price for a particular index, for delivery on a set date in the future. The practice is a way of insuring one’s investment dollars against adverse price changes in the future. Our indices futures table includes data for a number of indices, so investors can view Russell 2000 futures quotes, DOW futures, S&P futures, and more, all from a single chart. Links are provided to more detailed information for each index. An investor specifically interested in DOW futures or a Russell 2000 futures quote, for example, can click on the index name to visit its individual page, or click on the links in the far right column to see related charts for the index.
