    thanks for the info
  4. i'm not a seasoned trader of these products, but the stats show that dax is more liquid than the ftse, about 150k contracts/day to ftse's 100k (roughly speaking).
    dax is probably slightly more volatile and has the higher point value 25EUR to 10BP for the ftse.


  5. sorry, my mistake regarding the number of contracts traded daily. figure's are lower than that.
