S&P backwardation

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by Nasdaq5048, Mar 10, 2009.

  1. How can it be the S&P/Nasdaq June contract is trading at a discount to the Mar?

    Why do you actually get paid to go long stock? Even if interest were at zero, the Jun Mar spread should be at worst zero, but not negative.

    Any comment?
  2. Huh? Is this a serious question?
  3. Dividends pay you "to go long stock".
