Not much to report today - my QC acct is not re-instated yet so no action on US underlyings..... :(

Only trade of the day - bot the dip on CW.L - long 114.25 pp

What caught me mince pie tho - is 3i. looks to me thez some share buyback going on from the way it looks, MY OPINION ONLY :)

btw - the chap who is my replacement back in KSA (whoever he is) must be creaming now.... 1yr 3 months term vol on SAR is up at 72 from 27%...... good 4 him :)

Glad you're back into it.
I knew you'd put me right on the actual volatility aspects of the NQ! :LOL:
It just seems kinder at $20 a point! Ha Ha!!
3i hey, I remember buying them at around 2.70, on issue, and selling at 10.00, only to see them fly up to 17 quid in the heady days of the tech boom. :rolleyes:
Cheers

if u ask me perfect shake-off of smaller longs. With fear up we can now rock'n'roll into the year end.

Can cover long CW.L at 114.25 pp now by selling ADRs (CWP.N) at USD 6.60 with 0.75% loss. Staying L tho.

My opinion and my money only :)

Just a long overdue update!
If a moderator wants to move these posts from China to a more appropriate place then I can clean the whole thing up. I didn't want to just delete them as it felt a little harsh!
Cheers, and a Happy New Year to all. ;)

Where can I find a summary (or ideally a combined graphic) showing the relative opening/closing times of all the major exchanges? (Sydney, Frankfurt, Paris, Tokyo, Joburg, Toronto, Mumbai, HK, London, NY, Shanghai, etc).

I've tried fishing for the info within the websites of each major exchange (sometimes without success).
(Incidentally several of the original exchange links at the top of this thread no longer connect).

Can anyone help please?

Is there a similar type of site I wonder highlighting where and what are the best times and vehicles to trade and their various markets etc on a 24 hour basis?
I don't know if such a site exists, but personally, I have always found it much easier to trade an exchange based instrument when the exchange is open.

I've also, quite coincidentally, found it far easier to do OTC banking transactions when my bank is open.

Arf!

Sorry Rols, don't want to rub salty into the wounds - did you mean indices specifically or FX etc.?

I will rephrase oh pedantic one! To think I risked the wrath of a vindaloo raining down on me...

For example one wouldn't normally trade US equities in the 'deadzone' even though the exchange is open. I also wouldn't go to HSBC at lunchtime for obvious reasons!

So let's take say USD/JPY or Copper futures or Pork bellies; for all of these there must be recognised times to avoid and better times to trade.

I thought this might be helpful for a newbie and whoever to have a site where this info was available. And because you appear to know everything I thought you might know if such a thing existed.. That was all. :cheesy:

There is one for FX which was posted recently (last couple of months).

As for indices, what this forum is all about I don't know so I'll bow out.

Maybe Quercus can assist?
