Q&A by Don Bright


Maybe Don or somebody else can tell me how to calculate S&P futures. I remember back in the early 1990s, one guy at the quote terminal would calculate it by having a Standard & Poorís 500 call and put option quote with the S&P 500 indicator. Somehow, you would subtract the price difference of one or both contracts and come up with a number (if it was less than 10, the market was discount, and if it was greater than 10, it was at premium) that would indicate an imminent sell or buy. It worked very well. Not only that, I want to get a real-time tick.

I used to have this on my DBC/ QuoTrek machine in the early to mid- 1990s and it was great buy/sell indicator when it went -900 or +600.

Iím not super-fancy and donít have the systems most of you guys have. If you know how I can get a real-time tick, send me a holler. Thanks. ó dsq
