Ninjatrader 8 Futures Contract

HI, I am using Ninjatrader 8, but I have a doubt. I tryed use the "6A-0417" contract. However, the ninjatrader don't find this contract. Only find "6A-0417". Is there the contract "6A-0417"? Where can I see details about the contract more liquid?

Popsicle gave you the correct contract.
Currency-futures roll each quarter and not each month, so only 03, 06, 09 and 12 will be available.

On the following link you can see all the currently trading contracts

Australian Dollar Futures (AUD/USD) Quotes - CME Group

You should concentrate on the 'front' month, which is the month with the highest volume
in this case you should be on "6A 06-17"

The reason to trade front month, is for liquidity reasons, the highest volume guarantees
you the highest liquidity, means you can buy and sell with the smallest slippage.

good luck !
