Hoping somebody might know the answer to this. The NYMEX crude miny contract has an expiration date, a termination date and a notice date. Is termination = when the contract stops trading & notice = when you give notice as to physical delivery. Since to my knowledge, the e-miny is a cash settled contract. I guess notice date doesn't apply? Also, is it just me or does the e-miny not trade in the 3.15-5.30 pm 6.00pm - 9.30am sessions like it is supposed to? I have never been able to get any liquidity in those sessions.
