Settlement Method


Termination Of Trading

Trading at settlement is available for spot (except on the last trading day) and months 2-12, subject to the requirements of Rule 524.A. TAS Trading terminates daily at 2:30 p.m. ET. Products eligible for TAS pricing trade off a "Base Price" of 0 to create a differential (plus or minus 10 ticks) versus the settlement in the underlying product on a 1 to 1 basis. A trade done at the Base Price of 0 will correspond to a "traditional" TAS trade which will clear exactly at the daily settlement price.

TAS trading terminates 4 business days prior to the contract month.

TAS calendar spread trading available in months 1-12, all combinations.
