CFFEX CSI 300 index futures began trading on the China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX) in April 2010. The underlying index, the CSI 300 Index, is the stock index that China Securities Index Co., Ltd. composed with the 300 largest A-Shares listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange (179 stocks) and Shenzhen Stock Exchange (121 stocks).

Each CFFEX CSI 300 index futures contract is worth 300 yuan times the CSI 300 Index.

In the spring of 2015, CSI 300 stock index futures surpassed the S&P 500 futures in turnover to become the world's most traded equity futures.[1] Daily volumes reached 1.5 million contracts on May 8, exceeding the 1.4 million e-mini S&P 500 contracts traded that day.
