    Pity us, the poor Russell 2000 traders.

    ER2 was a wonderful trading vehicle. Fabulous intraday moves, easily tracked.

    Then the contract changes exchanges, just when record volatility hits all indexes.

    And the contract turns to a hellish monster.

    Massive moves in seconds/minutes. Data spikes crushing stops.

    Do these charts come equipped with a barf bag?

    I too am a displaced ER2 trader. Not sure whether the TF chaos is due to Extreme volatility in market or to ICE. Am trying to transition to TF. Will reserve judgment for now. But very unhappy with the volume so far.
  3. Its due to ICE of course. Myself, and many others predicted its downfall as soon as it switched. ICE itself, also has a wonderful history of crashing altogether. A data outage is a crash in my opinion cause ya can't use it at such times.
  4. I thought the CME was going to come up with something to replace ER2.
