At the same time, stock index futures also has became a mature risk management of international capital market. Until now, almost 150 kinds of stock index futures have been applied in about 40 countries and regions.There is much successful experience in the development of foreign stock index futures that we can make use of. In the choice of underlying index, the rules of choice of index have been put forward. That is to say, we should make a point of the efficiency of hedging and cost, representation of arbitrage, avoid of market manipulation, index accurate calculation, seasonable publication and acknowledgement of market.
