What is the difference between the following two Brazilian futures contracts:

  1. The Ibovespa Futures Contract
  2. The Mini Ibovespa Futures Contract

As far as I can tell, both are priced in Brazilian Real (R$) following the Bovespa Index exactly. I would have guessed the mini contract to be cheaper than the full contract, or at least different in some way.

How are the Ibovespa and Mini Ibovespa futures contracts different?

Both of these are futures contracts on the Ibovespa Brasil Sao Paulo Stock Exchange Index; the mini being exactly that, a mini version (or portion) of the regular futures contract. The mini counterpart makes trading the index more affordable to individual investors and hence increase liquidity.
