Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) today announced the results of the annual evaluation of the NASDAQ-100 Index® (Nasdaq: NDX), which will become effective prior to market open on Monday, December 23, 2019.

The NASDAQ-100 Index is composed of the 100 largest non-financial companies listed on The NASDAQ Stock Market® and dates to January 1985 when it was launched along with the NASDAQ Financial-100 Index®, which is comprised of the 100 largest financial stocks on NASDAQ®. These indexes act as benchmarks for financial products such as options, futures, and funds. The NASDAQ-100 is evaluated each year in December, timed to coincide with the quadruple witch expiration Friday of the quarter.

On a cumulative price return basis, the NASDAQ-100 Index has returned almost 6,673.51% since inception, although past performance is not indicative of future performance.

In addition, options, futures and structured products based on the NASDAQ-100 Index and the Invesco QQQ Trust trade on various exchanges.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
