Australian Stock Index Futures

  1. Does anyone trade Australian Stock Index Futures? I just need some general comments and nothing specific but beyond what is provided on the site.

    I've traded SPI on the Sydney Futures Exchange, but there is not sufficient liquidity for my tastes. I might trade it again if I was really bored and the HKFE and KSE were closed that day.
  3. Retief thanks for your reply. I have never traded the HKFE or KSE. Do you have a preference for HK or Korea?

    I prefer HSI on the HKFE to the KOSPI. HSI really moves. KOSPI is more liquid, but for whatever reason, I can't seem to trade it as well as the HSI.

    You might also take a look at STW on the Singapore Futures Exchange. I believe it's an index for Taiwan. That would be my third choice after the HSI and KOSPI.
  5. Thank you very much for the advice. If I may ask one more question. Is IB the best broker to trade these indices?
  6. Yes.
