S&P Futures

    My software, or maybe it's my broker, doesn't have sS&P futures quotes. Can you tell me how you all follow the S&P Futures? Is it a special symbol, or can you physically pull up the Dec ( Jan) S&P 500 options as an alternative? Any suggestions?


  2. Would help to know what software and broker you are referring to since what you are asking is extremely dependent on both.
  3. Rchemo


    Heh, yeah, good point. Right now I am using Marketport by Harrisdirect, but they were acquired by E*Trade and will be converting over to Power E*trade in January.
  4. ThinkorSwim has E-mini trading in the S&P and the Russell. 2000. OptiosnXpress also has futures on these indexes. If you want to trade or use futures than you might have to move to another broker.

    You need to pay for the exchange feeds

    Thanks you're right, they were there. Do you typically use Dec or a later date to trade with?

    I typically trade the front month!
