    Ohhh, right. Thanks

    So why is the SEP contract still thicker on the bid/ask in pre market than the DEC contract?

    dec will get thicker tomorrow

  6. That's what SHE said.
  7. Not everybody rolls over this early... nor even the first day. By later today or tomorrow, the bid/ask volume on DEC will be bigger.

    jobless claims better than expected (if 450 thousand people new out of work is better)

    from the bloomberg article on this

    "For the latest reporting week, nine states didn’t file claims data to the Labor Department in Washington because of the federal holiday earlier this week, a Labor Department official told reporters. As a result, California and Virginia estimated their figures and the U.S. government estimated the other seven, the official said."

    haha...what a farce the market is
