  1. In a perfectly liquid market.. would the ES be trading exactly at the same price as the current futures contract?
     
  2. no you have to factor in dividends and interest rate. Look on the cme website it tells you the calculation
     
  3. Let me ask this question then.. in a perfectly liquid market can the futures ever deviate from fair value?
