Expiry trades on FTSE100 and ASX200

Recommended Posts

I'm actively trading the FSTE100 on expiry every third Friday in the month.

I'm not looking in to do the same on ASX200 but are unable to find the period when the settlement period start and duration of it. 
The calendar is known https://www.asx.com.au/documents/products/expiry_calendar_2018.pdf but unsure on the settlement period. 

Is there anyone in the community that know this?

Cheers Casemiro

you can find the expiry dates of the futures markets on the IG platform here. Is this what you are referring to?

I am wanting the same information as Cassimiro. The FTSE expiry happens between 10.10 and 10.20 am London time. This is a set time where the market moves up or down about 10 -20 points and returns to the same point. It is a very predictable trade. The ASX has the same trading opportunity but we need the exact time it occurs on the ASX. I tried asking Magnetic Trading, but it seems it is a secret despite many $ spent. Thanks for reading my question.

The FTSE expiry takes place every 3rd friday of the month between 10:10 and 10:15 am UK time and volatility increases every qtr during the same period.

The ASX200 expiry takes place every 3rd thursday of the month between 10:00 and 10:15 am AEST time and between 10:00 and 10:20 am on the 3rd thursday of every qtr.

Thanks KL for your answer. Thanks also to the other contributor of the blog...

I will continue monitor the ASX behaviors during the settlement period and see if it acts in similar manner as FTSE. I did trade both marked successfully during triple witching last month but I was very unsure about the time period of the ASX settlement so thanks again.

    • https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/when-performance-matters%3A-nasdaq-100-vs.-sp-500-second-quarter-20-2020-07-13 should look similar with GICS - i.e. NDX underweight (vs SPX)to Financials (incl. RE), Energy, Materials and Utilities together roughly 25%... and those went kinda nowhere over the more or less recent past...:     ...of course this is rather superficial, but (together with comparisons posted earlier) suggests really exactly two - closely linked - segments in global asset markets have been trending (up) recent years:  US large cap tech and consumer (incl. Healthcare) stocks.   ...apparently a significant share of all the money printed globally this period  seems to eventually somehow have found its way into these highly concentrated segments...
    • I know relative to some brokers (who are taking the absolute $%&*) IG fx conversion fee of 0.5% is okay, however its still an absolute joke that they and the industry can get away with this flagrant ripping off of customers. I would like to know if IG have any plans to reduce their conversion fee ( trading US stocks in an ISA) to compete with others such as Trading212 who don't charge fx fees at all.... I have a moderate account with substantial turnover, like others I know, I'm now considering transferring my account to 212 as I cant see any justification for such high fx conversion fees now its been shown thats its possible to remove them al together... Perhaps 0.1% to cover costs would be understandable, but 0.5% so 1% round trip on trading any size is ridiculous. I easily give IG thousands, if not tens of thousands a yr in fx fees...
    • Hey,  Unfortunately in Singapore we don't offer a non-leveraged account. We offer these types of accounts to other clients in other countries but not for Singapore.   Apologies for the inconvenience.
