BVB indices track the price changes of the most traded companies listed on BVB or of representative sectors, such as energy or financial. Regarding the calculation methodology, all BVB indices are free float capitalization weighted price indices. Capping applies for the component companies’ weights.
Except of four indices: BET-TR, BET-TRN, BET-XT-TR and BET-XT-TRN which are adjusted for dividends, all BVB indices reflect changes in market prices alone.
Due to their methodology, BVB indices can be used as underlying for derivatives and structured products.
All BVB indices are calculated in RON, EUR and USD and are disseminated in real time.
