View Full Version : noobie questions about finviz.com and futures

07-13-2011, 08:22 PM
I don't understand the correlation between index numbers and index futures numbers. Could anyone help me out?

For instance:

Today the S&P closed at 1317.72.
Right now finviz lists S&P futures at 1309.40, with a change of -2.80 pts.

If I take 1317.72 and subtract 2.8, it isn't 1309.40

And then if I click for the chart on the S&P future, it gets even more confusing to me...
