Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Trading Energy Calendar Spread Options

CME has a new whitepaper out Trading Energy Calendar Spread Options

Calendar Spread Options (CSOs) are options on the spread between two different futures expirations. The Energy futures term structure represents the time value of Energy market variables such as storage costs, seasonality, and supply/demand conditions. Calendar Spread Options provide a leveraged means of hedging against, or speculating on, a change in the shape of the futures term structure.
CME Group has a diverse product offering that includes Crude Oil, Natural Gas, and Refined Products CSOs. This article illustrates the main characteristics of CSOs and their applications in the Energy markets
