Why did my position close due to Contract Rollover (CR)?

Some instruments are subject to a contract that closes on a monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly basis.


These include the China A50 Index and many commodities, such as Copper, Aluminum, Palladium, and monthly Crude Oil Futures.


Any open trades on these markets will be closed automatically on the contract’s expiration date. 


You can find the full list of instruments subject to a contract and upcoming expiration dates on our Trading Hours and Market Events page.


If your position closed due to Contract Rollover, it will show in your trading History with a blue ‘CR’ icon next to it.
