Ok, this is extremely basic, hoping someone can help me out here. Say i have an unrealized loss/gain on my futures position and expiration day comes. I want to roll it over and keep a position into the next month as i expect the price to reach my target. To roll it over, do i close out the current month...and turn the unrealized loss/gain into a realized loss/gain and simply enter into the back month....or is my unrealized loss/gain carried over into the back month. If the unrealized loss/gain becomes realized, imo isn't that like 2 trades, doesn't much seem like 1 continuous trade if you close it and take your profit/loss, no? Thanks.
