    1. partly just price movement in minute by minute trading.
    2. partly anticipation(?) on cash dow and interest rate trading.
    3. ES movement - almost always dance together.

    Premium not written in stone. its just a rough guide - sometime.

    But, when,say, overnite YM prems/discounts cash heavily, ya better pay attention.
  3. thanks...where do you find overnight DJI cash values (24 hours)...I know about the YM...or are you just saying when the YM and DJI converge at the RTH open at 9:30am Eastern?..thanks again
