I own shares in the iShares MSCI China A UCITS ETF. During my day job I keep an eye on my portfolio where I have one other position also traded from London. My other position is quite volatile, rising and falling throughout the day whereas my ETF stays stagnant at 0% change.
I figured this was because it was an ETF derived from Chinese stocks and when I'm keeping my eyes on my portfolio, the Chinese have theirs closed. To my surprise I noticed at about 1500 GMT that the ETF jumped 0.8% and ceased moving but it is moving.
Why is it moving so little? Are the stocks in the ETF simply not that volatile?
