Changes in the foreseeable Futures Contracts! From Tuesday, December 8, 2020, our Futures contracts offering are changed from roll-over to expiring Futures on MT4, MT5 and NAGA Trader.

In simple terms, this means your Futures positions will not be rolled over to the new contract after the last expired. Instead, 2 days before the Futures contract expiration date, you will only be able to close your position or wait to be automatically closed with the expiration (Close-only mode). Worry not, also 2 days before, a new symbol will be available for you to trade!

Let’s see a real-life example:

Let’s say you have an open position for JAP225# that’s due to expire on December 10. 2 days prior to the expiration, December 8, the instrument will be put on Close-only mode. You will also be able to open another position with a new symbol, JAP225_H1#, starting again on December 8!

Now let’s see what Futures will be affected with this upcoming change:
