In my case non-overlapping data would represent the scenario where futures prices (3 months) do not correspond to the futures spot prices in terms of delivery date. For example, futures settlement price (with 3 months delivery) on 01/01/2016 would represent the futures spot price on 01/04/2016 or should I just make 84 days horizon? Since various months consistent of different amount of days.

I am trying to replicate this study, btw. So how exactly I should work out non-overlapping data?

    $\begingroup$ It is hard to suggest a general technique, but in linear regression you should use Newey-West correction. $\endgroup$ Feb 24, 2016 at 19:02
  • $\begingroup$ If you have downloaded the future price data, maturity date is always given. By the way, if you have problem with overlapping data then go through this paper: www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/wbs/subjects/finance/faculty1/… $\endgroup$
