Btw, ES is 3 months but commodities like CL are only 1 month, and don't ever screw up and hold CL past expiration because it will show up in barrels of oil on your driveway lol

Sending that via truck to your drive way is too expensive. My home allows for delivery via barge (1000 metric tons / 980 long tons). As a trader you should be always prepared.

Three reasons to trade brent crude at IPE:

(1) The front month contract is not so volatile prior to expiry.

(2) You do not need to find a buyer in Cushing, Oklahoma (where is that, sound like the middle of nowhere ...)

(3) Brent Crude settles EFP (exchange for physical) and has an option to cash-settle.

Was not aware of this disposition Mike, thanks for the clarification. So from a daytrader's perspective, a contract only lasts 90 days. Do i need to be concerned by anything else ?

When you are trading the ags, the contract months follow the ag season. the NOV contract trades for months!
