Dear Customer,

Futures contracts have set durations as set out by the Exchange. Currently, we do not support the automatic switching of positions from one month to the next. Therefore, if clients want to maintain exposure to the underlying product, action is required to either buy or sell the product. This would involve closing the old contract and opening a new position in a futures contract with a later expiry date.

The expiry date of ATFXGM’s US Crude May 2023 (USOIL.JUN23) is May 18, 2023 (Thursday). Hence, the system will close the position automatically based on the closing price of the day. You are advised to manage the position before the expiry date May 18, 2023 at 23:55 (system time GMT+3), which is the Beijing time GMT +8 on May 19, 2023 at 04:55.

In the MT4 platform, you can also find the expiry date of USOIL.JUN23 as follow:
