A bounded futures contract symbol is made up of the following components:

  • The product e.g. BB

  • The Expiry e.g. W## 

    • Weekly contracts begin with a ‘W’

    • Monthly contracts begin with their respective monthly code (see Expiry Codes)

  • The Lower Boundary

  • The Upper Boundary


Symbol Structure:

[product][expiry] L[lower boundary]U[upper boundary]


Example: BBW52 L36U60

  • Product = BB (Bounded Bitcoin)

  • Expiry = W52 (Week 52)

  • Lower Boundary = L36 (Lower Bounds 36,000)

  • Upper Boundary = U60 (Upper Bounds 60,000)
