Since HS300 index futures launched officially in china in 2010 April 16, it runs smoothly and the volume is much more than expected. However, with the stock index futures listed in our country, stock spot market appeared a big decline, volatility rises apparently. Besides because of china’s capital market is emerging markets, stock index futures market conditions and international environment is different from foreign mature capital markets, we are very concerned about the stock-index futures of our country would play its value at price discovery and avoiding risk function. Based on market microstructure theory and information economics, combined with the risk linkage characteristics between stock index futures market and cash market, the study reveals the information transmission and risk conduction mechanism between the stock index futures market and cash market. By choosing Hong Kong’s hang sang index futures market and china’s HS300 index futures market for mature market and emerging market as the object of study, Adopt empirical analysis method to study Chinese stock spot and futures market’s price of linkage and risk of spillover effect, reveals the risk transmission characteristics between the Chinese stock market and futures, analyzes the volatility influence of stock index futures on the spot market, And based on the mature markets and emerging market research conclusions gave economics interpretation from a macroeconomic perspective and feasibility Suggestions that can guide our stock index futures market development.
