The damn NDX is now under 800, and personally I wouldn't care because I am not a long term investor. But this is driving up my trading costs. I trade emini Nasdaq and the cost to trade them has now doubled since I began trading them when the NDX was sitting around 1600. This really sucks. How much more does this damn thing have to go down before the CME will realize people cannot afford to trade at these levels. It is time for the CME to cut its rates in half. This is only fair because 800 is about 1/6 the value where it traded at its all time high. That means the costs to trade the emini are now almost 6 times as high as it was to trade an equal dollar amount when NDX was in the high 4000's range. This must end, the prices the CME are now charging are outrageous, given the current level of the NDX. It is time for the CME to slash its rates, either that or increase the emini Nasdaq value to $50 per contract from the current $20. How much more can investors endure? Must it sink to 200 before they take action? Emini trading volume (and QQQ volume) will dry up as the NDX sinks lower and lower.
