Stay Up-to-Date with New Auto Rollover Notifications!

By | December 16, 2020

Futures contracts are only active for a specific amount of time before they expire. As a result, futures traders must roll their contracts to avoid expiration, follow trading volume and ensure there is enough market liquidity for trade execution.

Some futures contracts expire on a monthly basis while others expire every few months. For active traders of multiple markets, monitoring various futures roll dates and avoiding expiration can be burdensome.

Fortunately, NinjaTrader recently introduced an Auto Rollover feature which alerts traders when contracts should be updated! Auto Rollover helps ensure NinjaTrader users are viewing, tracking & trading the latest contracts. Read More
