Futures CFD Contract Rollovers

Due to the current underlying Futures contract, from time to time, the affected indices will be unavailable for a short time while rollovers/swaps are applied. Rollovers are applied at the end of the trading day on the days outlined in the table below. The expected downtime for the rollover process is no longer than one hour. Once the contract resumes trading a rollover/swap will have been applied which will take the contract months’ price difference into account. All other products will be trading as normal during this time.

What is a CFD contract rollover?

The date post which the CFD contract matures is the CFD contract rollover date. A futures contract's expiration date serves as the final day you can trade that particular contract. Before the contract expires, a futures trader has three options:

  • Offsetting or liquidating the position
  • Settlement
  • Rollover

A rollover is when a trader moves their position from the front-month contract (close to the expiration date) to another contract date in the future, to avoid the costs or obligations associated with the settlement of the contracts. Contract rollovers are profit neutral.

Please note: References to expiry dates are correct at the time of publication and may be subject to updates and changes without notice.
