This thread could have easily been posted with the subject "Futures for beginners" but some other information may come out that is more generic in information.
I have received a Share Purchase Plan (SPP) offer from Westpac (WBC) to buy up to $10,000 in shares at the lower price of $16, or the weighted average share price. The shares will be alloted on 11 February and I have to make a decision by 30 January.
I won't be making my decision until closer to January 30, but wanted to see what the futures market was pricing WBC at around 11 February. To find out, I found this page 'Warrants & Structured Products prices' for WBC at the ASX website: http://www.asx.com.au/asx/markets/Wa...=WBC&State=127
However I don't know if this data helps me, or if I should be looking at something else. Any suggestions?
