Hi all.

Im holding a US500 JUN19 futures contract (spread bet) Does it automatically rollover to the SEPT contract at the end of June, or close...?

Thanks in advance

Hi @scuttsy, yes, unless you yourself close the position it will automatically be rolled over, so closed and re-opened, so you repay the spread though at a discounted rate.

@scuttsy

You should check your settings for rollovers, go to my IG then settings then rollovers and check you have rollovers enabled if you have a problem with that ring the customer services and ask if you have rollovers enabled.

    • yes they will be on less charts but I understand your point about the size of the moves in ftse, no harm in trialing them though you might find marking out the immediate prior high and low has more relevance.  
    • Yeah, I keep an eye on volume, that's why it's showing at the bottom of my chart However, I haven't been able to discover a strong relation between volume spikes and trend direction. Sometimes I see orders of the magnitude of 10-20k and the chart doesn't do anything special. Other times you see just average volume and the chart does huge turnarounds. For example what happened at 8.30 with that spike down and then going straight back up and making new highs vs previous candle? All happened on low volume
    • @jameswalker1 my recommendation is trade the demo account to get a better understanding of the costs associated. I traded demo for nearly 2 years before placing my first real trade. It will save you in the long run to get a better understanding of the costs involved.
