    I'm trading the 10y note march contract (symbol TYH09 on tradestation) and I just need a little clarification on when traders rollover to the June contract.

    I've read elsewhere on elitetrader that it is 1 or 2 days before first notice day, which for the march contract is 2/27 or this Friday.

    So what day should I start trading the June contract? Wednesday or Thursday?

    I'm curious as to why the old post I read on elitetrader used "1 or 2 days" Which is it, one or two days?

    Thanks in advance.

  3. bt 50 is correct. es rolls over a couple of days (watch volume) but the curve roll is specific when June goes topstep. here is an email I got from cme two weeks ago.

    All other delivery months will remain in their current positions.
