Discrepancies in today Wall Street Cash index

Question

Hi, may I ask is there a system glitch in IG for Wall street Cash index as Dow closed 27492 at 5.01am and the Dow  Futures was 27424 but IG Wall street at 5am is 27487, at 5.01am is 27454. Rightfully it should reflect the same value without any gap during the transition of market closing. 

There is a wide gap of 30 points difference (attached screenshot from the IG.)

Observed that the current points difference between Indices and Indices future of Dow 30 at Investing.com is 68 points (attached the screenshots from Investing.com)

Please kindly advise. Thanks!928722068_Screenshot_20191107-062442_IGTrading.thumb.jpg.011d0ad159944cfb47c24beeae4eacda.jpg

Hey @Cheerywalnuts, thanks for your post. 

The movement on the cash price was the dividend adjustent for Wall st. Adjustments are made 21:00 GMT, (so 5am Singapore time). We post the expected dividend adjustments on the community on 'Our Picks'. The Wall St adjustment that evening was posted as 32. 6.

    • My thesis didn't really revolve around him not being rich (i.e. successful, and without knowing anything about him I can still say I highly doubt he made his riches as an average stay-at-home punter) but rather that he just decided to put out the usual cliched trading wisdom rather than tell the honest truth about the nature of trading.  'Know the market', 'follow the trend until the bend in the end' and all the other glaringly, painfully obvious nonsense that doesn't really mean anything.
