An index option is one of the most popular derivative instruments among Hong Kong investors. As many international investors also participate in index options, this market enjoys greater depth and the transaction price of index options contracts can better reflect reasonable investment values.
With a focus on Hang Seng Index (HSI) and Hang Seng China Enterprises Index (HSCEI), Hong Kong index options may be operated together with index futures to not only control the portfolio risk, but also complement stock options. As such, the overall investment strategies can be formulated based on the level of implied volatility.
Like stocks, indexes have their own operational modes and characteristics. Only with a thorough understanding of the indexes can an improved return on the investment in index options be secured.
