Spread between the prices on IG and the underlying market when the underlying is open on the Aust 200 (XJO)


Recommended Posts

Can anyone explajn why there is a such a spread between the prices of the Aust 200 (XJO) and the underlying market when the underlying is open. Aren’t the two prices supposed to converge during the times when the underlying is trading? Today for example, there is a 20 point spread..

Are you talking about the spread between buy and sell price of each market (the spread) or the difference of price of each market. If the latter then that's interesting but can you actually use it for anything? Is one constantly lagging and the other leading that would allow you to get in front of price change?

I've often watched the IG Dax and Index side by side and there was no pattern to take advantage of, they would randomly orbit closely around each other with usually just a couple of points difference, occasionally up to 10 but only lasting a second or 2 and very rarely 20 points for a fraction of a second when there was a sudden surge in volatility.

    • Interoperability: Different blockchain networks follow distinct protocols and rules, making it challenging for them to communicate and share data/assets effortlessly. This creates isolated ecosystems that struggle to interact smoothly. For instance, if a blockchain supply chain system needs to exchange information with a finance blockchain to process payments, the lack of interoperability complicates the process significantly. Scalability: Scalability refers to a blockchain's ability to handle increasing numbers of users and transactions without performance degradation. Many popular blockchains, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, face scalability challenges. They require every node to validate each transaction, limiting their transaction processing capacity. As more users join or transaction volumes rise, the network becomes congested, leading to slower speeds and higher fees. This scalability issue hinders blockchain's use for high-traffic applications like global payment systems or decentralized apps (DApps). To address these challenges, researchers are working on solutions such as: For interoperability - developing standard protocols or "bridges" that enable seamless communication between different blockchains. Examples include Polkadot, Cosmos, and Nervos. For scalability - approaches like sharding (dividing the blockchain into smaller pieces to process transactions in parallel), off-chain scaling (conducting some transactions off the main chain), and others. The Nervos Network, a Layer 1 and 2 blockchain, aims to tackle interoperability and scalability issues using its Proof-of-Work consensus and tools like the Universal Passport for creating "Universal Applications" that can function across different chains. Overcoming these hurdles is crucial for mainstream blockchain adoption, enabling smooth integration with existing systems, high transaction volumes, and interconnected decentralized applications across multiple blockchain networks.
