  2. the mini is the MHI and the large contract is the HSI. The HHI is the China futures contract based on a basket of large CHina co's.

    From what I have read there are no capital gains taxes in HK so no worries there.

    mhi is not that active but the markets will line up to HSI. Just issue a quote request as market makers will respond and it will help to make sure you're not sticking in a erroneous price, check the similar option on HSI, put in an order at or 1-2 ticks better than the big contract and you should get hit or lifted.

    BTW, talk about making markets for the thick skinned - looks like the exchange may launch HHI options around June.
