Global Equity Index Futures - Liquidity & Volatility

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by CPTrader, Nov 7, 2005.

  1. Apart from ES, NQ, YM, ER2, DAX, ESTX50, CAC, NIK225, HSI & KOSPI what are the other global equity ndices that you consider good trading candidates vis-a-vis liquidity and volatility?

    What have been your experiences with these markets?

  2. Hi CPTrader,

    FTSE-100 is up there in the rankings shown below...

  3. HSI made your that liquid?

  4. The HSI is NOT as liquid a sthe ES/YM/NQ/DAX/ESTX but it's a volatile market and an important market.

    Any more ideas on other good "tradeable" global indices?

    You must have Eurex terminal for DDAX not to be dissadvantaged with quote dissemination
    Dax is influenced with local options -Zertifikate
    from euwax /34% from germany market/
  6. The list is incomplete. KOSPI futures options are far and away the most liquid contract in the world.

  7. Could you please elaborate?
