OBX Index

Takes first prize for the most useless and impenetrable exchange website I have come across so far and that includes some pretty exotic markets.

Try finding the contract specifications. Korea, Hong Kong, even Brazil are a joy compared to this supposedly reasonably advanced European country. Although it is said that they do have a lot of trolls up there - maybe they have employed trolls to design and maintain their website.

Herewith an answer from the exchange:
Hello,

You can find the OBX index future specification in the derivatives rulebook chapter 5.8.

(under the link: "Standard conditions")
We got a new rulebook in May, and unfortunately this is not available in English yet. However, to outline the OBX future specifications, there is 100 underlying each contract. The index is fully dividend adjusted, and with a daily market-to-market settlement. The rest you can find in the link above.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
Med hilsen / Best regards
