Why does it stop trading on thursday. And at what time ? 15:00, or 15:15 Chicago timezone ?
I can trade AEX weeklies on the Fridays until expiration.
When is the margin gone?
The RUT can move up to 8 points or more overnight Thursday. Even though the Rut will give an open price in the morning and move around some, they don't compute the settlement price until all 2000 stocks have made a trade that morning. Some of the illiquid stocks can push the time for settlement to after lunch to sometime in the afternoon. I've seen the settlement price vary by 4 points or more from the Friday morning open price because of the slow trading stocks. I've traded the Rut with OE and TOS and neither of them have released my margin/buying power in time to trade it on Friday. Now you know why I got out of the Rut. Now I'm in a different rut, the spx.
