Indices' calculation and the € / $ exchange rates

  • dIta is drawn from 'BATS Europe's quotations
  • dGer and dFra are derived from the CFD quotations on the respective indices as traded on the LMAX Exchange market.
All of them we make use the average between the bid and ask.

This data, though it might differ from that of the main markets, because of the continuous arbitrage of the always more widespread computerized trading systems, this also applies with regard to both the quotation of the dIta index components on the BATS Europe, as well as the quotations of the index CFDs on LMAX Exchange, in either case, there could only be a very limited variance from that of the main markets.

In the dIta, in lieu of the weights used in the FTSE/MIB basket, a security by security dynamically determined coefficient by multiple regression techniques is applied.

In the dGer and dFra, on the bid and ask average of the index CFDs, we apply a corrective coefficient defined dynamically by using a proprietary algorithm.

The deviation Compared to the official indexes, except in some cases, at the beginning or the end of the day, should normally stay below the 0.1%.

dUSA is obtained from the bid / ask average of the CME future on the SP index rectified with the interest on daily basis, and it's provided by the CME Market Data Group.

The EURO/Dollar exchange rate is provided by the LMAX Exchage.

The values ​​are updated every 10 seconds.
