  • Overview
  • Performance


The Cboe S&P 500 3x Up, 1x Down Enhanced Growth Index Series (the “Indices”) is part of a family of Target Outcome Indexes. The Indexes are designed to provide target outcome returns linked to the US domestic stock market.

The Index measure the performance of a portfolio of hypothetical exchange traded Flexible Exchange® Options (“FLEX® Options”) that are based on the S&P 500® Index. Each index in the series is designed to track the returns of a hypothetical investment that over a period of approximately one year seeks to provide 3x leveraged returns on the appreciation of the S&P 500 Index up to a capped level while providing one-to-one exposure to any losses due to a decline in the Index. The capped level is determined on each annual roll date such that there is no premium or discount to enter into the hypothetical investment compared to an investment in the Index.

There are four monthly series that roll on the last business day of each month:

  • Cboe S&P 500 3x Up, 1x Down Enhanced Growth Index January Series (Ticker: SPEG01)
  • Cboe S&P 500 3x Up, 1x Down Enhanced Growth Index April Series (Ticker: SPEG04)
  • Cboe S&P 500 3x Up, 1x Down Enhanced Growth Index July Series (Ticker: SPEG07)
  • Cboe S&P 500 3x Up, 1x Down Enhanced Growth Index October Series (Ticker: SPEG10)

Target Outcome Returns

The Index is part of the family of Target Outcome Indexes. Many investments target speculative returns, with uncertain levels of risk, over an uncertain period of time. While opportunistic, this approach to investing brings a high degree of uncertainty. Target Outcome Indexes encourage targeting a specifically defined return or "payoff", with an allowance for a specifically defined risk, at a specific point in time in the future.

Enhanced Return Option Strategy

An Enhanced Growth Option Strategy is a leveraged strategy that is generally used in a range-bound or modest bull market environment. It seeks to provide leveraged upside up to a predetermined cap and one-to-one exposure on the downside.

The strategy seeks to provide similar returns to the S&P 500 Index, with lower volatility and downside risks, in most market environments with the exception of when the stock market is rallying rapidly.


Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Prior to buying or selling an option, a person must receive a copy of Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options. Copies are available from your broker or from The Options Clearing Corporation at The Cboe S&P 500 3x Up, 1x Down Enhanced Growth Index (the “Index”) is designed to represent a proposed hypothetical yield enhancement strategy.
