Determining the two futures contracts in a CSO pair requires knowing both the underlying futures contract and the length of the spread. For Robusta Coffee CSOs, the first two characters of the contract code are RC and the last character indicates the length of the spread.
For example, Contract Symbol “RC1”, the “1” indicates that the second month in the spread pair is ONE month forward from the front month of the pair. If the month symbol is K18 (May 2018), the Contract Symbol “RC1” implies that the second month in the pair is N18 (July 2018) – one contract month forward from the K18.
Likewise, Contract Symbol “RC2”, would imply that the second month in the pair is U18 (September 2018) – two contract months forward from the K18.

Call Option
Buyer of a CSO Call Option has the right to establish a spread position of long the first month in the spread pair and short the second month in the pair, at a price difference equal to the Strike Price of the CSO contract.
Put Option
Buyer of a CSO Put Option has the right to establish a spread position of short the first month in the spread pair and long the second month in the pair, at a price difference equal to the Strike Price of the CSO contract.
Strike Price
The Strike Price of an CSO contract can be positive (indicating the price of the front month is above the price of the back month in the pair), negative (indicating the price of the front month is below the price of the back month in the pair) or zero (indicating the prices of the two months in the pair are the same).
