Overview:

T+2 Contracts

Traditional Monthly Futures

Contracts expire on the 3rd Friday of each month, where the expiration day is the last day available for trading. If the expiration day falls on an exchange (US) holiday, then the Friday expiration date will take place on the prior business day. The traditional monthly futures follow the below listing cycle:

  • Current Month
  • Serial Month
  • Next Quarter
  • Next Quarter

Friday Futures

Contracts expire on the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th Friday of each month, where the expiration day is the last day available for trading. If the expiration day falls on an exchange (US) holiday, then the Friday expiration date will take place on the prior business day. In a given month, there is a single expiration date for each listing symbol. Please see the Friday Futures Listing Logic for additional information.
