Re: $SPX Going the way of crude oil?

The whole commodity futures trading world went to hayull, in a handbasket, when they took frozen bellies off of the board.

When they first came with S&P 500 futures, not some little girly minis (emini) but something that men trade, all when they were pit traded ....

Due to the daily range and volume v open interest, we Merc Jerks called 'em "pin striped pork bellies", something for the sissy-a-s Wall Street types to trade.
