The SGX Nikkei one is more liquid, and it looks like they (OEC) offer some of the contracts on the SGX, the SFE, and Hong Kong.

If you were looking at things this time of day SGX NK and TW contracts, the SFE ASX SPI 200, and the HSI futures on the HKF are usually interesting.

Check the exchanges websites to see the calenders. On the SGX the NK contract front-month is currently June, for the TW contract it is April.

Excellent info. I see that you are in Asia, so I value your input here, thanks.

For some reason when I go add those instruments on the SGX, MC asks that I add the exchange, so I'm working on that now. I posted in the MC thread on that topic, so hopefully I'll have some resolution soon...

EDIT / ADD: I'm guessing that there must be a pretty good thread here somewhere on this topic, but I'll blame myself for not knowing exactly the best input words to search upon. If there is such a discussion, kindly let me know where or what key words to use. I'd ideally like to have several instruments around the clock as I'll be on travel a fair amount, including in India for several weeks next month...

The Nifty contract on the SGX is one of the only places outside India you can get exposure to an Indian equity index future, but I didn't see it on the OEC list. A list of futures contracts on the SGX can be found here:

SGX - Singapore Exchange Ltd

Not all of them are liquid. The IN, NK, TW, and SG are popular. The SGX LME contracts for copper, aluminium, and zinc are pretty new and may not take off but I'm keeping an eye on them. It is complex product as the underlying LME contracts are not really futures but forwards.

You should expect to see easier and wider access to the SGX later this year as they are rolling out gateways in the US and Europe to entice more people to trade their products.

Enjoy the journey!

I will definitely keep-an-eye on the SGX. Sounds promising...

Gold Futures GC

I am usine Ninja trader and noticed the volume for Gold on the 5min chart has been very low that last 5 or 6 trading days(untradable). Has anyone else noticed this. Been looking at the Sept, Oct and December months. Trading Silver (SL) which is more risky for my appetite.
