...for single-handedly messing up probably the best daytrader's e-mini contract for the past 4 years. Just bring up a 1 min chart of the new TFZ8 contract and look back from last Thursday's rollover to today. You can see the initial interest and transaction volume picking up nicely before today. But today...sheesh...if that's not a vote of no-confidence by daytraders than I don't know what is. This 1 min chart looks like a really bad penny stock. On the brighter side, the ES is acting like the old ER2 now. There's a lot more 2:1+ reward to risk opportunities with 1.25 to 1.50 pt stop losses to try and make 3 to 5 pts. This volatility may stay high now that there is more interest in it among the displaced ER2 daytraders. Whomever had the command decision of the ownership of the Russell Funds to approve this switch looks like they're going to regret this move for a long time to come. I'll bet folks at the CME who tried to pursuade the Russell owners not to give exclusive rights to the ICE are laughing their collective A's off as I type this.
