Posted By:- Ilan Levy-Mayer Vice President, Cannon Trading Futures Blog
What you need to know before trading futures on Sept. 13th:
- Front month for stock index futures is December!
- Highly anticipated CPI report is tomorrow
- Crude oil numbers are out tomorrow as the energy sector broke out to the upside in a strong way these past 2 weeks.
Volume in the September contracts will begin to drop off until their expiration Friday, September 15th (8:30 A.M., Central Time). At that point, trading in these contracts halts. Stock index futures are CASH SETTLED contracts. If you hold any September futures contracts through 8:30 A.M., Central Time on Friday, Sept. 15th, they will be offset with the cash settlement price, as set by the exchange.
Monday, September 18th is Last Trading Day for September currency futures. It is of the utmost importance for currency traders to exit all September futures contracts by Friday, September 15th and to start trading the December futures. Currency futures are DELIVERABLE contracts.
The month code for December is ‘Z.’ Please consider carefully how you place orders when changing over.
