CNBC Futures Don't match anything?

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by coldrunner, Jan 28, 2009.

  1. I scan CNBC ticker tape index futures quotes occasionally.
    Tonight they are:

    Dow -33.00
    SP500 -2.90
    Nasdaq +45.50

    I checked Futures websites at CME, Bloomberg and others for
    March 09 contracts. CNBC doesn't match with any site I see.

    Where to they get those quotes from, thin air?

    thanks in advance
  2. The Nasdaq Mar 09 contract should be -5.50
    and they went down the futures chain and
    used the June 09 contract +45.50.
    For the other two DOW and SP500,
    they used the Mar 09, it looks like.
  3. ===================
    Havent looked on any of theirs lately.
    Thier stock charts seemed to be drawn by a learner/7 year old-
    great for ''refrigerator art''.
    Typical TV/ ''news'' entertainment:D

    I do miss Art Cashin & Rick Santelli;
    but not CNBC charts.:p Eric, Erin, Martha ,Liz moved to FOX. always seemed to be more pro & accurate.
