Wall Street spread bet DFB exact underlying market?

John G


What is the exact underlying market that the Wall Street spread betting DFB market on IG is replicating?

I'm trying to backtest some ideas on this but any price data sources I see don't match the IG prices, not even really that close. 
Is the the E-Mini Dow Future (YM) ? Or some sort of derived  price from the actual DJI index? 

If anyone knows and can also point me to where I can purchase historical 1 min data it would be a big help!

Good question John. I am in the same position back testing various systems on Multicharts with IQFeed as a data source.

Did you ever get an answer (obviously not here) or find a solution to your back testing.

I am using E-Mini Dow Jones $5 (on IQFeed it is @YM#C) as a proxy but it is way out from IG's Wall Street.

IG appear to follow the underlying index (DJIA) whilst it is open, but not sure what they do outside the index session times.

Any more info would be appreciated.

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
