How To Get A Future Symbol For A Chart

You can use the chart of the underlying futures contract in order to view a chart on the corresponding derivative Nadex Product.

(To find the code for a futures contract combine: (1) Symbol of the Underlying Product + (2) Symbol For the Month + (3) Symbol For The Year)

For Example:

A Gold contract whose expiration month on Nadex is Januaryand whose expiration year is 2011

  • Would have GC is the symbol for Gold
  • Would have F is the symbol for January
  • Would have 1 is the symbol for 2014

= Therefore the symbol would be GCF4 on a charting platform.
