FAQs

Whether you are new to trading or looking to refine your knowledge, we have a range of educational videos and online courses (available on Saxo Bank's global website) that will quickly answer some of the most common questions about futures.

In addition, you can access futures quotes, charts, news and market commentary from industry experts at the Futures Institute, from CME Group, a leading marketplace and partner of Saxo.

Our expert strategists regularly post news, analysis and commentary to help you stay one step ahead of developments in the market and provide actionable trade ideas.

You can access their posts in the Insights section of our website, or directly through our trading platform.

If there is a Notice Day listed on your trade ticket, then your contract is settled physically. Taking or making physical delivery in an underlying asset is not offered through Saxo. We advise you to take note of the expiry and first notice dates (FND) for all the futures contracts you hold and ensure they are closed before the appropriate day. In the unlikely event of open positions at expiry, they will be handled as described below, and will include additional charges.

  • If the expiry day is prior to the first notice day (FND) the contract will be closed by Saxo on the expiry day.
  • If the FND is the same or prior to the expiry day any client's open contract will be closed by Saxo on the trading day prior to the FND.
  • If futures positions are not closed before the relevant date, Saxo will close the position(s) on your behalf at the first available opportunity at the prevailing market rate. Clients who have not closed their positions in a timely fashion, as described above, will incur additional charges.

The specifications of each futures contact can be found here.

Additional information about expiries can also be found in our futures trading conditions.

Our commission rates are based on your trading volume. For more information, click here.

In both SaxoTraderGO and SaxoTraderPRO, your commission and margin impact will be displayed on your trade ticket before you place your order.

Futures contracts are traded on margin, enabling you to leverage a small margin deposit for much greater market exposure. You can find more information on our margin requirements here.

Futures spreads are tradable on both SaxoTraderGO and SaxoTraderPRO. Saxo supports Limit and Market orders on futures spreads, Stop orders are not supported. The "Legs" section of the trade ticket allows you to view the direction of the trade in each contract within the spread. The pricing structure for futures spreads is the same as for futures contract; you are paying the two legs of the transaction.

By default, clients have access to delayed market data on the futures exchanges on which they are enabled to trade. To receive real-time data for futures trading, clients will have to subscribe to the individual exchanges.

Futures spreads can be useful for speculators and hedgers alike. The instrument offers speculators improved margin requirements, and traders can also roll over their existing futures positions whilst avoiding legging risk or spread risk of execution.
