May Futures contract expiry in just 3 days, make sure you have your Rollover choice selected and submitted  in advance, see the 'Setting's page on your 'My IG' dashboard (pic below).

If 'enable rollovers' is selected the May contract position is closed before expiry and a new equivalent position is opened for the June contract (IG used to give a discount on the spread of the new contract for auto rollovers, not sure if still do).

Difference of May contract and June contract is $5+. How to calculate rollover price roughly if I have long positions at present. Will I need to pay extra? Please help with example or someone can recommend calculator.

Does anybody know where the IG US Oil Spot price comes from?

It has been quite higher than historical daily WTI spot published by EIA:
https://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/hist/rwtcD.htm

E.g., on 13 April the EIA reported $22.36 and in IG it was around $28?

tks!

Hi, on rollover (Monday) your May contract will be closed just before expiry and a new June contract opened at the June Ask price so you just pay the June contract price spread.

Hi, as mentioned in another thread many agencies list the spot price using just the front futures contract as the underlying (May $20) but many brokers instead look at available liquidity and so use a calculation based on the 2 most liquid futures contracts as the underlying for their spot price.

What am I trading on IG if I'm not trading the same USOIL chart that everyone else seems to be trading?

I'm in my MT4 account on USOIL at it looks nothing like the USOIL on tradingview. Whats the deal? Sorry if I/we should no this but I thought USOIL was USOIL?

 

Thanks :)

Hi, I have checked both May, June & July future's charts. Only May future chart reflect current market price (below US$6 as of now, but not open for trade). Whereas charts for June & July future are not reflecting current market price. How can I trade current market price for US Crude?

Charts; US Oil Spot + the closed May futs + June + July.

The May contract actually closed on the exchange at minus $37.63, never been negative before.

May futures rollover to the June contract.

Futures not available on mt4.

They are all individual markets with their own price and price drivers but the other contracts will be looking hard at the May lead.

Really not sure how the overnight funding for Spot will go but the May price should be out of the calculation.

    • AUD/USD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart AUD/USD Day Chart Analysis AUD/USD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function: Trend Mode: Impulsive Structure: Navy Blue Wave 3 Position: Gray Wave 3 Next Lower Degree Direction: Navy Blue Wave 4 Details: Navy Blue Wave 2 appears complete at 0.65833; Navy Blue Wave 3 is active. Wave Cancel Invalid Level: 0.65833 Overview The AUD/USD Elliott Wave Analysis for the day chart focuses on identifying the current trend and wave structure within the market. This analysis characterizes the market behavior as impulsive, indicating a strong, directional move that aligns with the primary trend. Current Wave Structure The current wave structure under analysis is Navy Blue Wave 3, situated within Gray Wave 3. This placement signifies that the market is experiencing an impulsive phase within a larger impulsive wave, suggesting robust upward momentum. Navy Blue Wave 2 has been completed at the price level of 0.65833. This completion marks the end of the corrective phase of Navy Blue Wave 2 and signals the beginning of Navy Blue Wave 3. Next Lower Degree Direction The direction for the next lower degrees is identified as Navy Blue Wave 4. This indicates that after the completion of Navy Blue Wave 3, the market is expected to enter a corrective phase in the form of Navy Blue Wave 4 before continuing its primary trend. The analysis highlights that the market is currently in Navy Blue Wave 3, following the completion of Navy Blue Wave 2. Wave Cancel Invalid Level The wave cancel invalid level is set at 0.65833. This level serves as a critical benchmark for traders, indicating the point at which the current wave count would be invalidated if the market price falls below it. This invalidation point is essential for risk management, helping traders determine when to reassess their positions if the market does not move as expected. Summary The AUD/USD day chart analysis identifies an impulsive trend characterized by Navy Blue Wave 3 within Gray Wave 3. The market has completed Navy Blue Wave 2 at 0.65833 and is now in the impulsive phase of Navy Blue Wave 3. The wave cancellation invalid level at 0.65833 is crucial for maintaining the validity of the current wave count and for effective risk management.   AUD/USD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4-Hour Chart AUD/USD 4-Hour Chart Analysis AUD/USD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function: Counter Trend Mode: Corrective Structure: Orange Wave 2 Position: Navy Blue Wave 3 Next Higher Degree Direction: Orange Wave 3 Details: Orange Wave 1 appears complete at 0.67991; Orange Wave 2 is active. Wave Cancel Invalid Level: 0.65833 Overview The AUD/USD Elliott Wave Analysis for the 4-hour chart identifies the current market behavior as a counter-trend, indicating a corrective phase rather than a continuation of the primary trend. Current Wave Structure The wave structure under analysis is Orange Wave 2, situated within Navy Blue Wave 3. This suggests that the market is undergoing a corrective phase within the larger third wave. Orange Wave 1 has been completed at the price level of 0.67991. This completion marks the end of the initial wave in the current Elliott Wave sequence and sets the stage for the next wave. Next Higher Degree Direction The direction for the next higher degrees is indicated as Orange Wave 3. This implies that after the completion of the current corrective wave, the market is expected to resume its primary trend direction in the form of Orange Wave 3. The analysis highlights that Orange Wave 1 has been completed at 0.67991, marking the end of the initial impulsive move and beginning the corrective phase of Orange Wave 2. Current Corrective Phase Currently, Orange Wave 2 is in play, representing a corrective phase within the larger structure. This suggests that the market is undergoing a temporary pullback or consolidation. The completion of Orange Wave 1 indicates that the market has finished its initial impulsive move and is now correcting itself in Orange Wave 2. Wave Cancel Invalid Level The wave cancel invalid level is set at 0.65833. If the market price drops below this level, it would invalidate the current wave count. This invalidation point is crucial for traders as it serves as a benchmark for risk management. Breaching this level would suggest that the corrective phase has extended beyond expected parameters, indicating a potential shift in market dynamics. Summary The AUD/USD 4-hour chart analysis identifies a counter-trend corrective phase within the Elliott Wave structure, focusing on Orange Wave 2 within Navy Blue Wave 3. The market has completed Orange Wave 1 at 0.67991 and is now in the corrective phase of Orange Wave 2. The wave cancellation invalid level at 0.65833 serves as a critical point for risk management to validate the current wave count.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!  
    • The Nikkei 225 and Hang Seng both fell sharply overnight, with the latter awaiting news from the Communist Party's Third Plenum meeting. There has been only limited impact from the assassination attempt on Donald Trump, though fresh polling on the presidential race is expected, which may provide a clearer indication of the impact of the event on the race for the White House. Fed chairman Jerome Powell will speak this afternoon, and markets will pay close attention following last week's softer CPI print and rising expectations that September will see a Fed rate cut. The Dow succeeded in closing at 40,000 on Friday, and US futures point to a stronger open, though European markets are expected to begin the week on the back foot.
