Commodities List

 

  • Commodities symbols are created in three parts: the root symbol, the month code and the year code.
  • The month code - each month is represented with a single letter as displayed below:
     F - JanuaryJ - AprilN - JulyV - October
     G - FebruaryK - MayQ - AugustX - November
     H - MarchM - JuneU - SeptemberZ - December
  • The year code - is displayed as one digit. Hence 2009 would be displayed as 9, and 2010 as 0

For example: Crude Oil December 2010 would be displayed as CLZ0.
CL is the commodity code
Z is the month of December
0 is for the year 2010
