seems like the sp500 dec futures are being held around 1450 by an "invisible hand"

I hope DAX closes below 7348 today and there will be a gap up tomorrow, does not matter how big. That would mean high probability of gap closing and also going further down (e.g. 16/08/2012 - gap closing and 23/08/2012 - going further down). Nothing is certain, though.

think the fact that the US treasury market is closed is making trading very slow.

i think the "committee to re-elect obama" are sitting with their continuous bid on sp500 futures at 1450.
