Does anyone around here trade the FTSE 100 these days? Assuming that you can get a good commission rate, the contract appears to have some good bang for the buck. The exchange fees are pretty reasonable (50 pence/rt) in relation to the tick value (5 pounds). With those numbers, (again, it depends on what your clearing firm charges on top of that) one could conceivably make decent $$ with a tick-to-round turn ratio of less than .5 . Anyone care to comment?
