Has anyone traded this market? Contract size is not too large at NOK100 per point. Quite correlated to the Swedish OMX30 index but wondering about the merits of including both Norway and Sweden and halving the position size for both markets.

The only downside seems to be the limited volume at under 2,000 contracts per day. Slippage may be a concern; there was a crazy spike on Feb 9 which trigger my stop buy order (stop buy at 563, it opened and filled at 596). I suspect that might have been my fault!
