US Index CBBCs FAQs

Can Mandatory Call Events be triggered for US Index CBBCs during HK stock trading hours?

No. A Mandatory Call Event is triggered by the spot level of US Indices so can only occur during the US stock market trading hours. UBS US Index CBBCs are traded on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Therefore, if US Index Futures reach the call level of a CBBC during HK stock trading hours, the issuer will continue to quote for the CBBCs (unless the theoretical value of the CBBCs are less than HKD0.01, the issuers cannot quote).Investors can still trade during the HK stock trading hours even when the related future price is lower than the call level of bull contracts or higher than the call level of bear contracts.

During US stock trading sessions, for CBBCs that are already listed, if the US Index spot level touches or goes beyond the call level of the US Index CBBCs, Mandatory Call Events will be triggered for those CBBCs. For CBBCs to be listed on the next HK trading day, if the US Index closing level touches or goes beyond the call level of the US Index CBBCs, Mandatory Call Events will be triggered for those CBBCs as well. The Mandatory Call Events will be reflected before the opening of the next HK stock trading day.

As US Index CBBCs are traded across two different time zones, if the next trading day falls on a HK holiday, the Mandatory Call Event will be postponed and only reflected on the next HK trading day.

How to calculate the residual value of US Index CBBCs after Mandatory Call Events?
If the investor holds a US Index CBBC until expiry, how is settlement value calculated?

US Index Warrants FAQs

Given the different trading hours between the United States and Hong Kong, will the price of U.S. index warrants move during Hong Kong trading hours?
The price of underlying warrants will move during Hong Kong trading hours since the issuers use underlying futures as hedging tools. In the case of the Nasdaq, issuers use NASDAQ 100 E-mini Futures, whereas the Dow Jones E-mini Futures is used as hedging tool for the Dow Jones index warrants. These futures have a very short maintenance period and are traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange's electronic trading platform for nearly 24 hours, which means that when events occur in the APAC region or Europe while the U.S. stock market is closed, it will still reflect on the U.S. stock futures immediately. Hong Kong investors can adjust their strategy before the U.S. stock market opens.
Are the price movement and settlement of U.S. index warrants different from those of Hong Kong index warrants?
What other risks associated with U.S. index warrants that investors should be aware of?
