Exchange Traded Futures A futures contract is a standardized agreement between two parties that:
- Commits the seller to sell and the buyer to buy a stipulated quantity (i.e. multiples of a fixed minimum contract size) and grade of a commodity, currency security, index or other specified item at an agreed price determined by market forces for future settlement.
- Requires the daily settlement of all gains and losses by marking all positions to market at a predetermined official settlement price.
- For contracts remaining open until expiry, provides for either delivery or a final cash settlement
