The e-mini S&P 500 futures are on shaky ground

Generally speaking, the stock index futures markets stumble into October

The last week (or so) of September is notoriously weak for equities, and strong for Treasuries. We don't see any reason to buck the seasonal trend. After all, Friday's bloodbath on Wall Street is a sure fire sign that investors have not gotten over the mid-August stock market "crash".

Treasury and stock index futures traders awaiting the Fed and option expiration

For Futures Traders, the Countdown to the Fed is on

Six days from now we'll finally find out whether or not the Fed believes initiating a rate hike is a good idea. The investment community is polarized by the debate, and it seems the Fed might be too. We are still of the belief that they won't be looking to make any moves until the October or December meeting (most likely December), but either way the…

A year's worth of futures market volatility in a week.

China and crude oil are running the show in the financial futures markets.

We aren't saying it is right, or even rational, but it is clearly China's economic data and volatility in crude oil that are in the driver's seat. Data out of China continues to disappoint despite some rather dramatic actions being taken by the country's central bank. We have to admit, we thought the futures markets (commodities and…

The futures markets can stay irrational longer than most can stay solvent

Even the most bearish of the bears couldn't have predicted the bloodbath we've seen in the equity index futures markets since posting a August 18th high. As experienced futures brokers, we've lived through the 2008 financial crisis, the 2010 flash crash, and the August 2011 Federal budget crisis collapse; however, we've never seen a sell off quite like this one.

It is no secret that the U.S. equity markets were in desperate need of a "good" correction. In fact, many very smart (and…
