Asian Futures - Trade Kospi with NH Futures

Recommended Posts

For traders looking to trade the Asian markets, Kospi futures is perhaps one of the most exciting contracts to trade. Highly liquid and volatile enough to keep the average day trader interested.

 

Here is a snapshot of the DOM in action:

And here is a snapshot of a 5 minute chart.

For those interested, we also have a thread dedicated to Kospi futures. This can be found here.

 

Which broker has access to Kospi?

 

There are not many brokers that offer the Kospi contract. Ideally, traders would want to access a broker locally in Korea. As all Korean securities firms are also FCM's, this means that there is no middleman to pass your orders through. This eliminates any unnecessary commission costs. Due to the high demand and inquiry for Asian products, we have partnered with NH Futures, a local Korean FCM that provides excellent english speaking support and top of the line trading tools from CQG. In fact CQG Trader is offered for free.

 

Our aim is to provide TL! traders with access to quality brokers whom we trust and respect. Traders deserve the best service, support, competitive commission rates, and tools. To learn more about NH Futures, please visit this page here: http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/nhfutures/

Soultrader, are you trading kospi with nh future?

I asked nh future in the link, but english version is not available yet.

 

And do you know any free demo to see Kospi future's volatility and how it looks like overall in day trade.

I'm surprised by the liquidity. Is the market as wild as say, the DAX?

 

Would it be stretching it to trade one contract with a US$10k account?

 

Really interested in this market as it fits my timezone well and it's quite liquid. Looks like it actually moves too. Not to mention that I'm a korean national living abroad (can't speak korean very well though).
