NSE Futures and Options symbol format:- 

There is No Continuous Futures in NSE feed, its just created (By the Data Vendor) for the convenience of technical traders.

In Pix Connect you will get the three types of symbols 

      1. Continuous Futures 
      2. Contract Futures 
      3. Options - Weekly and Monthly 

Let's understand all three formats.

1. Continuous Futures:-

We are using _I (Under Score Eye) for continuous contract futures. 

E.g:-  Three Months of Contract as below.

First Month Contract=  _I     
NIFTY = NIFTY_I          BANKNIFTY = BANKNIFTY_I         TCS = TCS_I      RELIANCE = RELIANCE_I    SBIN = SBIN_I

Second Month Contract=  _II       
NIFTY = NIFTY_II         BANKNIFTY = BANKNIFTY_II        TCS = TCS_II     RELIANCE = RELIANCE_II    SBIN = SBIN_II

Third Month Contract = _III     
NIFTY = NIFTY_I          BANKNIFTY = BANKNIFTY_III         TCS = TCS_III    RELIANCE = RELIANCE_III    SBIN = SBIN_III
