What happens when a contract ends? Like i see contracts on say natural gas that ends on January 2018 then February 2018 and so on, does like when the January contract ends, it just transfer to February now? Or does that future go away and cant be traded anymore?


If you wanna roll (Natural Gas futures) you must sell contact at the latest in Last Trading Day. January 2018 has lLast trading day (27 Dec 2017) and buy February 2018.
If you hold January 2018 contract after Last trading day the underlying asset (Natural Gas) will be delivered to you.
