I have done a bit of research and put together a spreadsheet and some charts in my attempt to predict the end of the SP futures contract. The 2 part article is named: Is the SP doomed? - What is the future of the SP? and Predicted End Date for SP - When will the SP stop trading? I'm running this poll in order to get your opinions and I'm hoping to keep track of this thread and poll in the years to come and see how accurate our predictions are. My guess is that the volume in the SP, if it remains in its current form, will dry up during 2008 - in two years time. What do you think?
