The NADEX exchange offers several instruments to speculate on besides besides the currency markets. These products follow the indicative pricing of several Futures contracts. By knowing the proper Futures contract symbol you can chart the Nadex Underlying instrument.
Futures contract symbols are created in three parts: Root symbol, Month code and Year code.
The Month code – each month is represented with a single letter as displayed below.
The Year code – is displayed as one digit. Hence 2015 would be displayed as 5, and 2016 as 6, etc.
For example: US 500 June 2015 would be displayed as ESM5.
ES – is the Root code (US 500)
M – is the Month code (June)
5 – is the Year code for 2015
We re-created the NADEX symbols list on the chart below so you can easily find the proper Futures contract given the Instrument, Month and Year.
Be aware each charting platform may have its own symbols different from the industry standard symbols shown here. Check with your platform provider.
