  1. IB - could we please have a date for the release of the KOSPI futures contract?

    or if not a date, could you please explain why its taking so long. IB has been saying they will offer the KOSPI contract for over 2 years now???

    im sure you already know there are plenty of us eager to trade this contract.

    does anyone know of any other broker's that offer the KOSPI contract?

    thanks.

    vegas, you know who to contact for specific questions but yes we have resolved all the issues on our list including margin and KRW FX.

    KTM: No, the contract is not yet CFTC approved

    local: if volumes make sense then we'll have to look into it.
