S&P Futures contract

  1. Sorry for the horrible question guys. Just started using the SP Futures for my entry and exit points again. Its been so damn long.

    My question- thought we were on the U contract- but I am getting horrible ticks as if its not trading on the U contract chart. The Z contract on the other hand is getting great ticks and moving nicely.

    How much of a dumb ass am I? Are we on the U or Z? Is it my data or should I be watching the Z?

    Thanks in advance and be nice. ;)
  2. z since thursday
  3. Thanks man. Is there a webpage that will give me dates. Every page I searched told me we were in the U contract.

    The Z contract is December right? Thats whats confusing me. Last time I used SP Futures to trade we just had a symbol that was correct all year- didn't have to deal with contract changes.

    Appreciate it.

    Just compare the volume of Sep vs Dec, rollover is always the second week of the expiration month.

    I just enter the continuous contract on my chart.
