    Hey Guys. Great Forum. Awesome amount of constructive info here. New To Trading, was wondering how the lettering system for futures months works. ex: H06 is March 06 but please explain why M06 is May ect. It's probably somethign simple I'm overlooking, but I'm missing correlation, and it's pretty frustrating. Thanks in advance!!

  2. M is june...

    I know that off of my head.
  3. My understanding is that F (January) was made F for First month. I was told that my first day as a runner many years ago. You go in order after that and try to avoid letters that could be mistaken as numbers on hand written tickets.
