What are Futures Contracts?
Futures Contracts are a type of exchange traded derivative security that obligates buyers to purchase, or sellers to sell, an asset at a predetermined future date and price. They have standardised details, such as price, quantity and delivery date, which enables them to be traded on futures exchanges. Most futures contracts are settled in cash.
How do futures work?
Trading Futures Contracts gives you exposure to price movements of underlying securities without having to own them. You may profit from underlying security price rises by taking a long position in a Futures Contract. Alternatively, you may also profit from a price fall by taking a short position.
