U.S. Index DLCs FAQs

Given the different trading hours between the United States and Singapore, will the price of U.S. index DLCs move during Singapore trading hours?

The price of underlying DLCs will move during Singapore trading hours since the issuers use underlying futures as hedging tools. In the case of the Nasdaq, issuers use NASDAQ 100 E-mini Futures, whereas the Dow Jones E-mini Futures is used as hedging tool for the Dow Jones index DLCs. These futures have a very short maintenance period and are traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange's electronic trading platform for nearly 24 hours, which means that when events occur in the APAC region or Europe while the U.S. stock market is closed, it will still reflect on the U.S. stock futures immediately. Singapore investors can adjust their strategy before the U.S. stock market opens.

In assessing the performance of the DLCs you should be aware that daily leverage performance of the DLC is always referenced to the previous closing level of the US indices, which is usually 4pm Eastern Time for regular trading days.
