Hey everyone thanks for taking the time to read.

I have a question about the volatility indices cash contracts.

I want to know if there is roller cost at the end of the month on this product as there is on the Volatility futures contracts? 

Hey @topdog, thanks for your question. 

The cash market is priced using the forwards. They have a smaller spread but are subject to overnight funding. These cash contracts however do not have an expiry date.

Future contracts on the other hand have expiry dates which you can find in the get info sections. These are the underlying prices, they have a wider spread but no overnight funding. The cost is the spread you pay when we open the next contract.

Thanks Charlotte,

Would you be able to tell me what the effect overnight funding will have on my contracts?

Hey, 

The overnight funding for the VIX is calculated the same way as overnight funding. The best explanation is on our website which you can find by following the link below under commodities. Note, the rate last night was -0.469983 and 0.462142. Meaning if you were short you would have paid 0.469983 x bet size. If you were long you would have been credited 0.462142 x bet size.

Hello all.

I have a question. I hold 9 points for US Crude which is not much.

My overnight charges went up from £18 last week to £87 last night and it keeps growing after every night. Just wonder if that's normal and what is based on as the formula in the last post does not make much sense to me to be honest? P2 - P3 not sure what is that and where can I find it to be able to calculate it myself to better plan for my positions?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kindest Regards

Danius

    • Lunar New Year begins on 1st February. We expect affected markets to be closed on the following dates:   We will offer out-of-hours pricing on index futures throughout the period. We do not presently offer out-of-hours pricing on the Malaysia 30 or the Hong Kong Tech Index (marked with *). Any amendments to the schedule will be shown below.   Please don't hesistate to contact client services should you have any questions.  All the best. Ludwik
    • Looking good! If price declines into March and then bottoms on the 14th of March at the 30k level we will have a great opportunity to go long for new highs all the way into 2023! March 14th is the next cyclical turning point and a low on that day will signal a rally.
