What you need to know:

Effective Friday, May 26th, 2023, Nasdaq will begin disseminating the following new indexes on the Nasdaq Global Index Data ServiceSM (GIDS).

What are the new Indexes?

The NASDAQ-100 Daily Currency Hedged MXN Index is designed to represent returns for the NASDAQ-100 Index (NDX) (the “Underlying Index”) and global investment strategies used on the Underlying Index that involve hedging currency risk, but not the underlying constituent risk. The hedge ratio of the Index is the proportion of the portfolio’s currency exposure that is hedged. The Index uses a hedge ratio of 100%. By selling foreign exchange forward contracts, global investors are able to lock in current exchange forward rates, and manage their currency risk. Profits (losses) from the forward contracts are offset by losses (profits) in the value of the currency, thereby negating exposure to the currency. The index is hedged against the Mexican Peso.

How are the Indexes disseminated?

On Friday, May 26th, 2023, data recipients will receive real-time index information from the proprietary GIDS data feed with the following attributes:

Instrument ID Instrument Name Currency Frequency FP Type
NDXMXNH Nasdaq-100 Daily Currency Hedged MXN Index MXN ODCL I
