  1. finally someone understands, most of the time I get slammed for making this suggestion.

  2. Well, yes...the index futures traders, emini's, will always be glad to sell futures over FV, buy all the stocks, and then buy the futures underwater, and sell back the stocks. We started doing that back in 1982...good point.

    Thus, stocks follow the leading indicator so we choose to trade the (easier) stocks vs. that leading indicator, for the most part. I guess I trade the e's a bit, LOL.
