Officials say the new indexes will better reflect Poland's economy

The Warsaw Stock Exchange began publishing two new indexes today, Sept. 23─the WIG30 index, the value of which is based on trade prices, and the WIG30TR, a total return index based on trade prices and dividend income─each containing the 30 largest and most liquid stocks listed on the exchange, which officials say better reflects the Polish economy.

The WSE will run the WIG30 in parallel with the existing WIG20 index until the end of 2015, when it will replace the WIG20─while migration of futures and options based on the current index will begin in late 2014.

The WIG30 index will be calculated and published every 15 seconds between 9am and 5:15pm local time every day, while the WIG30TR will be published three times per day─at 11:15am, 3:15pm, and 5:10pm, with a repeat publication at 5:15pm.
