  2. Oh my God... how could this be? It must be a sign or an omen.

    I am putting on my tinfoil hats as we speak.
  3. have you ever heard of BASIS?
  4. if you so smart why don't you answer that
  5. I thought I just did. Futures are not always above the cash (BASIS). It usually indicates the down turn if they fall below the BASIS.

  6. it was not for you, but thanks for explaining.
  7. The Dow cash has been leading the Dow Futs since rollover. Most all of 2007 (with a few exceptions [Feb 27 being one]) Futs were leading the cash.
