Rolling Futures Symbology – Nearbys (Continuous)

Rolling futures symbology follows a similar format for different symbols. A nearby for the day session is the root <numeric month out>. A nearby for the Globex session is the root preceded by ‘G’ and followed by <numeric month out>. The format is illustrated below using NYMEX WTI crude oil as an example.

Globex Session
Front month /GCL<0>
One month out /GCL<1>
Two months out /GCL<2>

Rolling Futures Symbology - Alias

An alias represents the current contract and will change as the contracts roll. An alias for the day session is the root [numeric month out]. An alias for the Globex session is the root preceded by 'G' and followed by [numeric month out]. The format is illustrated below using WTI crude oil as an example.

Globex Session
Front month /GCL[0]
One month out /GCL[1]
Two months out /GCL[2]

Rolling Futures Symbology – Continuous Months

Rolling futures symbology for a particular delivery month is the root <month>. (Note the month is entered by its first three letters and is not case sensitive.) This pulls the most current trading contract. To access a month beyond the most current month, use the root <month +number of years out>. Both symbologies follow similar formats for different symbols. The formats are illustrated below using WTI crude oil and heating oil. Continuous month symbology is only for historical time series analysis.

NYMEX crude continuous January /CL<JAN> NYMEX heating oil September /HO<SEP>
NYMEX crude 2nd January out continuous /CL<JAN+1> NYMEX heating oil 2nd September out continuous /HO<SEP+1>
NYMEX crude 3rd January out continuous /CL<JAN+2> NYMEX heating oil 3rd September out continuous /HO<SEP+2>
