Buy futures today and sell them tomorrow

Real Time Future are futures that you can buy and sell today. Each morning, the price of every future contract is calculated based on the previous day's prices, giving you a real time view of how each is priced. And because your trades are executed in real time, you can be sure that there won't be mistakes or misunderstandings. It's real time trading, brought to the future.


Sell futures before expiry

Real Time Futures (RTF) is a new way of trading futures contracts. It's not about predicting whether the market will be up or down by the time you want to exit your position, or even at all. It just allows you to sell futures before expiry and automatically rolls your contracts into the next contract month at prevailing price.

  • PDT rule for futures

    The Postponed Deemarking Time (PDT) rule for futures contracts has been in force since then. The PDT rule allows a futures holder of some long futures to postpone (or "deem") the marking-to-market and settlement of those long futures contracts until a later time, if those longer-dated contracts are due or have settled during what are normal business hours for the contract market, and the longer-dated futures are carried on margin with another registered futures commission merchant.
