    there are many on that site who post blog entries under "Tyler Durden".
  2. zerohedge is like Broken Social Scene - lots of singers in that band. They are both collectives.
  3. be that as it may, the question was why the post is absurd.
  4. Because the backwardation in index futures comes from dividends combined with near zero interest rates, and nothing else.

    This isn't cotton.

    whoever posted that has 'priced himself to irrelevence.'
  5. bingo.

    this is something even a newbie should know.

    how they post crap like that on ZH and at the same time mix it in with real insight is amazing.
  6. However, this total cluless person has access to a Bloomberg Terminal.

    Makes you wonder about how sophisticated some of the so-called 'professionals' really are.

  7. Real insight from ZH? I haven't yet witnessed anything of the sort... Most of the crap they post is just that, crap.
  8. I understand the dividends part but how does near zero interest rates effect the price of the far out contracts? Would anyone care to explain?

    Thank you,
