Where can I track Dow futures?


Futures are financial instruments that represent an agreement to purchase or sell a particular commodity or asset at a predetermined price on a future date. The price of futures contracts is determined by the market, and they fluctuate as the underlying asset changes in value. Futures are not deliverable until the specific contract maturity date, so investors need not worry about storage, financing or interest costs. In fact, since futures trade on margin, which is a loan account initiated with a futures broker, most investors do not even put up initial capital for trading.


 
 

What are the US 30 futures?


The US 30 futures contract is based on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, a leading indicator of U.S. economic activity. It provides a view into the direction of the U.S. stock market and is used by investors and trading firms to hedge investment portfolios, manage asset allocation, and create synthetic securities from a group of approximately 30 large United States companies.

 

Contracts fall into two categories:


Physical delivery - With physical delivery, we will deliver your futures contracts in the same manner as you receive stock or index options. This means that once your order is filled and executed, it is physically settled and no cash is involved. The underlying security, often a stock or index, is delivered to you by our FCM.

 

Cash settlement - The Dow Jones Futures (DIJA) is an instrument for hedging or speculation on the price of futures contract referenced by Dow Jones Index. It is a cash settlement futures contract between Investor and Credit, which will be settled by the exchange through delivery of the underlying Dow Jones Index futures, not physical delivery of gold or silver.

Other facts about Dow Jones Futures (DIJA)

The Dow Jones Futures is a system that allows traders to buy and sell the future, or commodities to be delivered at some point in the future. It was created by allowing a contract to expire when there is no interest in buying or selling it further. For example, rice futures might be for a January contract for delivery of rice once it is harvested, but because it isn't needed until after it is harvested, the contract ends once it expires.

What is the futures market doing right now?

A futures market is a type of financial market in which contracts for the future delivery of a commodity at a certain price are traded. Futures are standardized and traded on an exchange, as well as off-exchange in the over-the-counter (OTC) market. The minimum contract size is specified by the exchange, meaning that each “contract” is actually for a specified amount of a commodity.
