    Hello Gentlemen.

    I am little confused what the relation is between the Dow Mini (YM) and DJIA index that is usually used as the benchmark. The confusion arises when I see the close of the DJ Mini which does not tally up with the close of the DJIA index.

    The reason I ask, is that if I go e.g. short outside regular trading hours and there is say a 30 point difference between the two indices, I may be out in my calculations for placing a Stop Loss.
