Market Symbols and correlations

I’m currently using NinjaTrader and the markets that I have access to that I’m actively trading are
NQ 09-20
ES 09-20
GC 08-20
CL 08-20

I’m looking at some Futures traders on here to follow and the symbols are different. Do they correlate or do I need to find a different brokerage that has these?

You need to do more research. August Gold is in delivery and is inactive. December 2020 is now the most active month. August Crude Oil is off the board. September 2020 is now most active.


If you use C2 AutoTrading, you do not need to worry about symbols. Collective2 automatically translates the symbols into the correct symbol used by your broker, regardless of which C2-compatible broker you use.
