An index warrant is a structured warrant that is issued over an underlying index e.g. the Hang Seng Index or the S&P 500®. The index call warrant tracks the performance of the underlying index, meaning, it tends to increase in value when the underlying index increases. The opposite is true for an index put warrant. That is, the put warrant tends to decrease in value when the underlying index increases.
