Host Jeffo says: so why are SPY and S&P charts different

dereksas says: I dunno, but I'd assume it has a lot to do with the reason QQQ sometimes diverges from ndx

Host Jeffo says: what the symbol for S&P 500 for BigCharts

dereksas says: dunno

Host Jeffo says: sp500

dereksas says: but I know when not all Nas100 is open, QQQ diverges from ndx...I'd assume it's the same with S&P vs SPY, particularly in the AM before biggies open (like was the case monday)....C would know best
dereksas says: looks to me like the difference was caused by monday morning when SPY traders were trying to reflect all when S&P500 index
dereksas says: when S&P500 index was still adjusting to tickers not being open
dereksas says: after monday AM, they track

Host Jeffo says: thx
