Roll-Over Notice for Stock Index Futures

Hello Traders,

Please remember tomorrow is roll-over day for Stock Index Futures.   Please read below for details.

Important notice:


For those of you trading any stock index futures contracts, i.e., the E-mini S&P, E-mini NASDAQ, E-mini Dow Jones, as well as any of the “Big” pit-traded stock index futures, it is extremely important to remember that tomorrow, Thursday, June 13th, is rollover day.


Starting tomorrow, Thursday June 13th, the September ‘13 futures contracts will be the front month contracts.  It is recommended that all new positions be placed in the September ‘13 contracts as of tomorrow.  Volume in the June ‘13 contracts will begin to drop off until their expiration next Friday, June 21st.

Please consider carefully how you place orders in the E-mini S&P, E-mini Nasdaq, Mini $5 Dow Jones and E-mini Russell 2000 contracts.  While the E-mini rollover occurs tomorrow at 8:30 A.M. Central Time, orders placed this afternoon and evening after the 5:00 P.M. Central Time opening (before rollover) will work through tomorrow’s 4:15 Central Time close (after rollover).


The month code for September is ‘U.’


Traders with electronic trading software should make sure that defaults reflect the proper contract as of Thursday morning.


An additional note regarding the “Big” pit-traded stock index futures:


Please be aware of liquidity issues in the June ‘13 pit-traded contracts.  Expect sharply decreased liquidity beginning Friday morning.  Carefully consider whether you wish to place Market or Stop orders in these contracts after that time.  The executing brokers in the June contracts of the “Big” pit-traded stock indexes will not be “held” on ANY order.  They will not take Cancel and Replace orders at all beginning Friday June 14th.
