Hello,

anybody knows what is the rollover rule for the Bund (FGBL)?

Un saludo,

Pablo


It should roll 1 day prior to expiry. FGBL 12-10 expires on December 8, so you would roll on Tuesday, December 7.


You can also determine the rollover date via volume crossover. Volume should shift from the old to the new contract on Tuesday.

Question: If you still hold a long position of the old contract on first notice day, you are running the risk to be assigned to purchase the underlying by the clearing house. Has anybody tried this? Does your broker automatically roll or close your position to avoid this?

My broker ups the margin to account for that to make sure you either trade the correct contract or have enough for delivery.

Does anyone know of a website that lists all the near term contracts of futures instruments with the associated volume for each contract? I have found quote.com that shows this info for all futures, but does not have volume.

Newbie Question

So speculators must rollover to the next contract lest they get stuck with an actual delivery?

Those who actually need the delivery of barrels of oil will not rollover?

That makes trading futures kind of like hot potato right?

Apparently so, unless your broker closes the position for you before contract expiry. See the answer from Fat Tails below:

ive never had trouble rolling over contracts until recently and im not sure there is even a problem here but something looks fishy. is the 6E volume just really low today or what? i notice the rollover date for the 3-13 contract is 12/17/2012 but was set to 12/14/2012 in NT so i changed that and reloaded my historical data and it looks like nothing has really happened today. am i off my rocker here or what?

@madLyfe:

6E traded a volume of around 204k contracts today so far.

Did you already take a look at the merge settings in your instrument manager ?

Hmm, that sounds strange...you may try to change the Merge Policy parameter to 'DoNotMerge', this was also a Rollover problem on CL recently...
