What Are Futures?

Futures are derivative financial contracts that obligate the parties to transact an asset at a predetermined future date and price. Here, the buyer must purchase or the seller must sell the underlying asset at the set price, regardless of the current market price at the expiration date.

Underlying assets include physical commodities or other financial instruments. Futures contracts detail the quantity of the underlying asset and are standardized to facilitate trading on a futures exchange. Futures can be used for hedging or trade speculation.


  • Futures are financial contracts obligating the buyer to purchase an asset or the seller to sell an asset and have a predetermined future date and price.

  • A futures contract allows an investor to speculate on the direction of a security, commodity, or a financial instrument.

  • Futures are used to hedge the price movement of the underlying asset to help prevent losses from unfavorable price changes.

Futures—also called futures contracts—allow traders to lock in a price of the underlying asset or commodity. These contracts have expirations dates and set prices that are known up front. Futures are identified by their expiration month. For example, a December gold futures contract expires in December. The term futures tend to represent the overall market. However, there are many types of futures contracts available for trading including:

  • Commodity futures such as in crude oil, natural gas, corn, and wheat

  • Stock index futures such as the S&P 500 Index

  • Currency futures including those for the euro and the British pound

  • Precious metal futures for gold and silver

  • U.S. Treasury futures for bonds and other products

I've been trading Futures Contracts for sometime now; especially the ES Mini S&P500, Micro ES Mini S&P500, Nasdaq 100 Mini, & Micro Nasdaq 100 Mini. I'm providing signals and helpful tips and informative trading strategies for these futures contracts for free on my FaceBook Group Page and on my Twitter Page
