The recent fun in equity markets made me look at index futures again, and I found what looks like a tradable edge in FTSE and FDAX. I'm keeping an eye on it during the day, and noticed that the market's behaviour relative to large limit orders seems different in FDAX and FTSE. The attachment is a snapshot of the Eurex book at about 12:15 CET today. Chart showed resistance just below 75. In the book there's a largeish offer at 75. So far so good. What seems to happen in FDAX is that the market stays away from such large limit orders by 1 tick. In the FTSE it tends to hit them exactly and then they go away, being spoofs. I've now observed this so many times that I'm wondering: Is it feasible to lean on size in FDAX? Any FDAX scalpers care to comment?
