Futures

Futures are financial derivative contracts that bind parties to buy or sell an asset at a specified future time and price. Regardless of the market price at the date of expiration, the buyer or seller must buy or sell the underlying asset at the agreed-upon price. Physical commodities and financial instruments are examples of underlying assets. Futures contracts are standardized to make trading on a futures market easier and to specify the quantity of the underlying asset. Futures can be utilized for speculation or hedging.
