TSE Mothers Futures are linked to the TSE Mothers Index. TSE Mothers is the start-up companies market listing 240 companies of 4 trillion-yen market cap*. In contrast to TSE 1st section, which makes up the mother market of Nikkei 225 Futures/mini /Options, major investors on TSE Mothers market are retail investors. This is also true for its futures market. Constituents of TSE Mothers Index are completely different from those of Nikkei 225 or TOPIX, and investors are different, hence, TSE Mothers and Nikkei 225/TOPIX are not correlated.
