Clueless About Currency Futures

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by Corso482, May 4, 2003.

  1. Actually I'm clueless about futures in general...

    Could someone explain the follwoing to me??

    I type in ed03z and the chart goes all the way back to '98 and is liquid the whole time. Why is that? I thought futures traded different contracts? Why is the '03z contract showing up on my chart all the way back to '98?

    When I type in any other contract, it only shows recently as being liquid, which is expected because people should only be trading this specific contract as of late. I don't get it.

    I would love to find more currency contracts that show up as long term, liquid charts...that way I could backtest them easily.

    Thanks for the help.

    They trade for several years, maybe you could buy an ED06Z already (if you want to ...).
