Futures Month Codes


I was recently looking for the Futures Month Codes and couldn't find them so I'm sticking them here on the forum so that I can easily find them again.

Here are the codes used by the exchanges to designate the delivery months for futures contracts:

Code Month
F January
G February
H March
J April
K May
M June
N July
Q August
U September
V October
X November
Z December
Y Cash or Spot price (no year, usually)
