How Futures Markets Came About - September 30th, 2010

Futures contracts on commodities have been traded for a long time. In

USA, such contracts began trading on Chicago Board of Trading (CBOT) in

1860's.


In the past three decades, financial futures contracts have been

evolved.


They encompass a variety of underlying assets -- securities, stock

indices, interest rates & so on.


It was in America only that a formal beginning was made, when the

Kansas City Board Of Trade (KCBT) introduced stock index futures

contracts with the "Value line Index" serving as the underlying index.
