DAX versus S&P

Discussion in 'Trading' started by Compulsive, Mar 10, 2009.

  1. I know they correlate each other, but does any one know which index actually follows? S&P follows the DAX or DAX follows the S&P?
  2. depends on what time it is
  3. When you find that out, tell no one and just trade the one that follows.

    Bank all the profits and pay off the national debt.

  4. there is no such thing, i am afraid.

    in fact, no index follows anything but but its own course at all times. the fact they correlate 90%+ just means they move in tandem most of the times. there is no free lunch there i guarantee you.
  5. I know that many times there can be a head start on the YM or S&P and then a delayed on the Russell then it follows....but I was trying to find out on the DAX
