Futures Contract

Futures contracts, often referred to as futures, are agreements that bind traders to buy or sell assets in the future at a specific price and date. These financial instruments are frequently used by both hedgers and speculators as a way to potentially anticipate future price movements, either for hedging against risks or for making profits.

A futures contract specifies the number of units of an asset that will be bought or sold, as well as the price and the time at which the asset will “change hands.” Settlement of the contract occurs when it reaches its expiration date, at which point whoever holds the futures is obligated to buy or sell the underlying asset for the agreed upon price.
