If you have arrived at this article, you may have come across the following error message while trying to trade on a contract:
This message is displayed due to the fact that, when trading on the market, it’s only possible to trade on the current contract, that is, the one that is being commercialized at that moment.
Assets that end in FUT, such as WINFUT and WDOFUT, indicate the historical series, that is, a compilation of all the previously negotiated contracts.
Let’s put it this way: the mini index has the prefix WIN, and to access its historical series it’s necessary to add the suffix FUT, resulting in WINFUT:
As you can see in the image above, there are contracts compiled which date as far as 2005 in daily negotiations. Therefore, this asset is intended only for market studies and not for direct negotiation.
If you wish to know more about how future contracts work and how to identify the current asset’s ticker, so that you can effectively trade on this market, we have prepared an article for you!
