Sector Index Futures is a futures contract with sector index as an underlying. Initially there will be a total of 5 underlying sectors available for trading: Energy and Utilities (ENERG), Food and Beverage (FOOD), Banking (BANK), Commerce (COMM) and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Similar to the SET50 Index Futures, Sector Index Futures expand the set of tools available to help you manage sector rotation in a portfolio more efficiently. With these contracts, you can seek profits based on how you expect certain market sectors to perform or hedge your sector-related risk. These contracts give investor the ability to individually target and trade major sectors comprising the SET Index.
