    Looks like it will not due to an agreement with SGX (singapore) which trades the same contract via open outcry during Japanese hourse. As for offering it via Globex, I assume we (IB) will.
  5. arbitrage I guess :)

    What will be the ticksize? I'm guessing $25 ?
  7. IB already has the N225 that trades on Osaka. Tick is 10K Yen or $94USD. Morning session begins at 7PM EDT. I recall the data charge being around 15$ to 20$ a month.
