  1. Anyone see that? I see a low point of 1391.25 then it bounced to 1414.63 now.

    I cannot find a real print down to 1391.25 though.

    I saw -41 on my screen, but then it popped back to -31 and -28 faster than i could see.
     
  4. Seems like it got shrugged off.
     

  5. So do you wear pants too or just shorts?

    did it go limit down?
     
  7. I believe the overnight limit is 70 handles. It looks like it got as low as 49.25. :eek: :D :eek: :D :eek:
     
  8. or is that only the day session?

    Pity I was sleeping back then... such a great move in NQ too... :)
     
  10. it's easy for a 1% move to turn into a 2 or 3% move in the overnight session b/c there is so much less liquidity. ES quickly recovered. although if you were stopped out and got hit by 10 points of slippage that's cold comfort.
