LIFFE definition

The London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange (LIFFE) is the former name of the ICE Futures Europe. It is one of the largest futures and options exchanges globally, and it is based in London, England. The exchange was renamed in 2014 when a series of mergers and acquisitions left it under the ownership of the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE). Today, it offers a wide range of financial products for trading, including commodities, equity derivatives, and forex derivatives.

 

ICE Futures Europe and the Brent Crude index

The exchange is monitored by investors around the world as it publishes one of the most important indices in oil trading: the Brent Crude index. The Brent Crude index is the benchmark index for pricing crude oil, and it is based on the price levels of Brent crude oil, which is a blend of crude oil from various oil fields in the North Sea.

 

The Brent Crude index is also used as a reference point for other financial instruments and certain derivative products. Examples include oil ETFs, futures, and options. The index is calculated as an average of the prices of several crude oil futures contracts traded on the ICE Futures Europe exchange. The exchange calculates and publishes the index daily, based on the settlement prices of futures contracts on the previous trading day.

 

How to participate in the exchange

Investors can participate in the exchange by opening an account with a broker that is a member of the exchange. They can then access the exchange, where they can buy and sell futures contracts of financial products such as hard and soft commodities, equities, and currencies.

Investing in CFDs involves a high degree of risk that you will lose your money due to the use of leverage, particularly in fast moving markets, where a relatively small movement in the price can lead to a proportionately larger movement in the value of your investment. This can result in loses that exceed the funds in your account. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and you should seek independent advice if necessary.
