Investopedia explains 'Futures Pack'


Futures packs are differentiated by using colors to identify each group of contracts. A pack order is divided into white, red, green, blue and gold. A white pack starts with the soonest delivery month and covers the first four quarterly months in the first year. A red pack starts with the fifth quarterly delivery month and covers all quarterly months in year two and so on for the rest of the colors.
