    Is there a site where I can find out when a futures contract is going to expire/rollover?

    I just got started trading Futures markters (QM, CL, ZW). How do I know when to flip to the next month?

    Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
     
  2. All of the information on contract expiration schedules is on the respective exchange's website.

    Most contracts are rolled 1 week or so before First Notice Date or Last Trading Day, whichever comes first. Liquidity dries up as you get closer to expiry.

    Hopefully you're trading a simulator for now...
