This historical event comes at a time when prospects for new product introduction and growth are the best in over a decade. Several factors have converged to bring us to these crossroads in the equity index futures business. In the short-term, some investors believe that these factors will result in product overload leading to a high cost structure, while others view them as a new platform for business growth. The factors driving index futures products include: ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
