Futures down 2% vs Cash down 0.3%- Whats going on??

  1. Just had a glance at my trading platform and saw that the Italian daily future market is down over 2% for the day wheras the Italian daily-rolling cash market is down merely 0.3% for the day.

    The chart shows that at around 8am UK time the daily-future market crashed down nearly 2% in a vertical line,
    wheras none of the other Italian markets reacted at all at this time.

    Similar thing for the Spanish daily future vs daily rolling.

    I dont hold any position on either of these markets and so it does actually affect me at all,
    but was just wondering of anyone knew what has caused this?
