Quick Tip: Futures Bookie?
Sports betting is generally risk-free for the Bookie. They adjust the odds as the bets roll in to stay “delta neutral” (to steal a trading definition).
The CME has an interesting product called an Event Contract. They look just like sports bets. For example, this morning you could bet that the S&P Futures will close above 4025. It’s at 4045 at 7:20 ET. You’ll pay $11.75 to take that bet and earn $8.25 if you’re right. Conversely, you can fade that bet for $9.75 and earn $10.25 if you’re right.
Not my cup of tea for trading however there may be a “tell” here. The pricing and location of the S&P bets say that 4025 is a level of importance. You have negative reward to risk agreeing and positive reward to risk disagreeing.
I’ll capture these levels daily for the S&P futures and report back to you afterward if I find any actionable rule.
