IB Mexico Futures

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by Nasdaq5048, Feb 13, 2008.

  1. Has everyone notice IB has added mexican futures? Has anyone tried it? How big is the contract? Is "IPC" the one we should trade?

  3. Steve, any plans for any other S. American markets?
     
  4. Is it a new product or did i just miss it? If it is new I think you guys need to promote this thing (put it on the website news section or something) in order to generate more interest and revenue. Looks like a small contract, i am somewhat interested.
     
  5. How come most of the stocks are US names? Is the US names just equal to the US price times the exchange rate?

    I'm not sure of the timetable for other S.American markets, but the press release for Mexico was last week:

  8. "I'm not sure of the timetable for other S.American markets"
    Can we assume that more are planned, you just don't know the timetable, or is that putting words into your mouth?

    :D We'd like to offer every liquid market in the world - but it takes alot of time to set them up
     
  10. Brazil would be a nice next, but I have a feeling there are regulatory and currency conversion issues.

    Bring me the wild frontier markets where the ramping syndicates roam free :D
