ES-RISK Spread Compression Unwind Threshold Reached

Tyler Durden's picture

No point in getting too greedy: after the latest spread compression opportunity was presented courtesy of yesterday's late afternoon ramp on speculation of a debt deal, breaking the ES-RISK correlation, and taking it to a 12 point spread, it has since contracted to a nearly negligible 4 points as of last check. The only thing better than free money from a 100% spread closure is 66% spread closure.At $50 per ES contract pt (coupled with a comparable DV01 match on the synthetic RISK side) this is $450 profit (on only ~$5k margin), or around 9% return in one day. We'll take it. Spread entry/exit points provided as usual by Capital Context.
