Expiry months There are four weekly futures contracts. Each weekly future expires on a specific Friday of a month; the Friday of the month is indicated by the number in the trading symbol. In general the weekly futures have an initial lifetime of at least four weeks. The weekly future for the new month is introduced on the Monday after the expiry of the current month. In case there is a fifth Friday in the coming month, the weekly future for the fifth Friday is introduced on the same day as the weekly future for the fourth Friday. If the specific Friday is not a normal business day, the expiry day will be the last business day preceding this Friday.
