    Determine correct contract month

    Hello support,
    The CME site shows the month codes for contracts.
    http://www.cmegroup.com/month-codes.html

    All the contracts Im looking at have 03-17 at the end of the symbol. Is this the current contract period? How do I load the next contract period?

    Thanks.

    Hello Grantx,

    Yes, 03-17 is the current expiry month for most futures instruments. You can rollover futures instruments at Control Center-->Tools-->Database Management. Click Rollover and it will rollover all futures instruments you see listed.

      Thanks for your reply. What does 03-17 mean? What will the next contracts number be?

        Hello Grantx,

        Thank you for your note. The "03-17" signifies the March 2017 contract. For most Futures contracts, they are going to be quarterly. The next contract would be "06-17" and then "09-17" and finally "12-17" before the next year begins. If you have questions regarding a specific instrument, please let us know and we will be happy to assist further.
