3 thoughts on “Futures trading process”

  1. The entire process of futures transactions can be summarized as opening, positioning, liquidation, or physical delivery.

    In open warehouse refers to the newly bought or new futures contracts of traders. For example, you can sell 10 -handed soybean futures contracts. When buying and selling, it is called the opening of the position. In the futures market, buying or selling a futures contract is equivalent to signing a long -term delivery contract. After opening the position, there is no liquidation contract, which is called a liquidation contract or a unable to close the position. It is also called holding positions. When opening the position, the position held after buying futures contract is called multi -headed position, referred to as bulls for short;

    If the trader retains the futures contract to the end of the final trading day, he must settle this futures transaction through physical delivery. However, there are a small number of physical delivery. About 99 % of the market participants choose to sell the futures contracts they bought before the end of the final trading day, or buy the sold futures contracts, that is, the original futures transactions are used to heben the original original. Futures contracts, with the obligation to settle futures transactions and relieve the expiration of physical delivery. For example, if you sell soybeans in May 2009, 10 hands, then you should buy 10 hands and same contracts to settle in before May 2009 expired. The transaction process is over. This is just like finance accounting. The same funds enter and exit once, and the accounts are flat. This kind of buying back -selling contract or selling contracts for sale is called liquidation. After the traders open their positions, they can choose two ways to settle contracts: either choose to close the position, or keep it until the last trading day and perform physical delivery.

    The futures traders may be profitable or losses when they buy and sell futures contracts. So, from the perspective of the trader's own perspective, what kind of transaction is profitable? What kind of transaction is losing money? Please see an example, for example, you chose a sale of a soybean contract. You sell a 1 -hand soybean contract that will be delivered in May next year for a price of 2188 yuan / ton. At this time, your trading part is called a "short" part. You can now say that you are a "short -selling" or a 1 -handed soybean contract.

    Is when you become short, you have two choices. One is to keep a short part until the expiration of the contract. When the delivery, you buy 10 tons of soybeans and submit it to the contract in the spot market. If you can buy soybean at a price below 2188 yuan / ton, then you can make a profit after delivery. On the contrary, if you buy at a price higher than 2188 yuan / ton, you will lose money. For example, if you pay 2238 yuan / ton to buy soybean for delivery, then you will lose 500 yuan (regardless of transaction and delivery fees).

    The choice for you to be a short is that when the price of soybean futures is beneficial to you, hedge the liquidation. In other words, if you are the seller (short), you can buy the same contract to become a buyer and close the position. If this makes you puzzled, you can think about what you did when the contract expired above: you buy soybeans from the spot market to make up for the short position and submit it to the contract with the contract. The essence is the same. If you are both short and long, the two offset each other, you can evacuate the futures market. If you make a short term for 2188 yuan / ton, and then make a long time at 2058 yuan / ton to buy the original selling contract, then you can earn 1300 yuan (regardless of trading fees).

  2. Open an account at a brokerage company, and then purchase contracts through a brokerage company and futures exchange. Because the futures itself is a two -way sale, the contract is a virtual target, so the futures have the contract and there are physical delivery. Individuals cannot handle physical delivery and will be forced to close the position before the expiration. Factors with delivery capabilities, etc., often use futures to avoid market price floating risks. After the expiration date, it is supervised by the futures exchange to conduct physical settlements at the designated place.

  3. Choose different futures companies, the difference between the handling fee is very large
    I we directly give you the lowest one: all futures variety fees are only 1 point (only 0.01)
