Vienna Stock Exchange expands ATX index offering with new Short Indices
The Vienna Stock Exchange has begun calculating new Short Indices based on the Austrian Traded Index (ATX). The new indices with a leverage of -12 and -15 are based on the ATX Total Return which takes into account the dividend payments of its index members.
The Vienna Stock Exchange calculates more than 140 tradable indices, 103 of which track national, regional or sector developments in the CEE and CIS countries. These indices serve more than 140 financial institutions worldwide as the basis for their products.
Short indices are linked to a benchmark index and track its performance inversely. In addition, this effect can be enhanced by the use of leverage mechanisms. This gives investors the opportunity to benefit from falling prices. The two new indices run in the opposite direction to the ATX Total Return.
