  1. Could anyone please clarify this,in plain English:

    ''Trading is conducted for delivery during the current calendar month; the next two calendar months; any February, April, August, and October falling within a 23-month period; and any June and December falling within a 60-month period beginning with the current month.''


    Thanks in advance
  2. Assume we are in Feb...

    Trading is conducted for delivery during the current calendar month and the next 2 calendar months - This means there will be February, March and April 2013 futures contracts

    Any February April, August and October falling within a 23 month period - This means contracts for Feb, April, Aug and Oct 2013 and 2014 (The next contract, Feb 2015 would fall outside the 23 month period)

    Any June and December within a 60 month period - This means there are contracts for June and Dec 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017

    All the contracts mentioned above combined make up the futures curve of the contract.
