Determining the two futures months in an CSO pair requires knowing both the Contract Symbol and the Month Symbol. CSO contract symbols are three characters long, with the first two characters denoting the futures contract for the pair and the third digit signifying how to identify the second month in the pair, which must be implied using the Month Symbol for the CSO contract. For example, the Contract Symbol “CT1” indicates the underlying contract is Cotton No. 2, and that the second month in the spread pair is ONE month forward from the front month of the pair. If the Month Symbol for an CSO contract is K10 (or May 2010), the Contract Symbol “CT1” implies that the second month in the pair is N10 (or July 2010) – one contract month forward from the K10; the Contract Symbol “CT2” would imply that the second month in the pair is V10 (or Oct 2010) – two contract months forward from the K10.
