Q.What are the most actively traded contract months with the most liquidity for TOCOM listed contracts?

A.

Unlike many overseas commodity futures exchanges, generally speaking the most liquid contract months with the highest open interest and trading volume on TOCOM are the back end or forward months and not the nearby months. This is popular with many individual speculators and other traders as they can hold the position open longer if they wish to.
