    Correlation Between Stock and Bond Prices

    Hi All, I wonder if there is anyone on this forum who may be able to shed some light on the above? I have read that these move in the opposite direction. The reason being that they compete with each other for investment capital. As the economy is expanding and stocks are doing well, people...

    Expiration of Options and Futures

    Thanks - I was looking at witching days and their effect on the markets when these products expire. The book I'm reading was written a while ago and it seems that some information is out of date. I guess with all these new products, i.e. SSF and weekly options and so on, that witching days are...

    Expiration of Options and Futures

    Sorry, completely forgot about that! US markets - Indexes such as dow30, nasdaq100, S&P 500 and Nasdaq and NYSE stocks in general for stock options or SSF. I have tried looking for this information, but you'd be surprised at how many contradictions there are! I think what I have is correct...

    Order Routing

    Hi Guys, I hope everyone is well. I am having a little difficulty in understanding something about order routing.. due to the fact that the author of the book I’m reading contradicts himself on a few occasions. If I send a marketable order (either a market or limit order) direct to the market...
