Hi,

I'm sure the answer is simple. I've just joined so newbie question....

On Fri 4th Sep FTSE closed at 5799 and change   On this platform it shows 5831 and change.  

Why is there a difference ? 

Thanks

Cliff

We do have multiple FTSE100 markets. Some are cash and some are future prices. 

The future price is the price in the underlying. It had as expiration date and has a slightly wider spread but you don't have to pay any overnight funding. 

With the cash we use the future pricing and fair value adjustment to make you a price with a smaller spread but you do pay overnight funding. 

You can see the different markets on the platform:

All the best

Hi Charlotte, 

Thanks.  I did check cash v futures. So is it the case that non of the FTSE 100 indexes you have will tie in exactly to the 'market' FTSE100 ?  

Regards

Cliff
