Futures Contract Specifications

Note: The schemes are quoted in local exchanges' time.

Order types and Order handling

Stop and Stop-Limit orders are subject to support by the exchange on which the contract is traded. The order types available are noted in the pop-up details for each contract. When Stop orders and Stop-Limit orders are not supported by the exchange, Saxo Markets offers the possibility to execute stop orders through synthetic stop orders where your order is triggered if the underlying is traded at least for one lot.

Partial fills may occur on Limit orders and the remaining amount stays in the market as a Limit order and may be filled within the order duration. Market orders can be filled at numerous levels, the price paid will be the volume weighted average price of all the fills.

With Saxo Markets you avoid physical delivery of the underlying asset on expiry of a futures contract, which is not supported. Therefore, we advise you to take note of the expiry and first notice dates (FND) of any futures contracts in which you have positions and ensure they are closed before the appropriate day, as described below.

  • If the expiry day is prior to the first notice day (FND) the contract will be closed on the expiry day.
  • If the FND is the same or prior to the expiry day the contract will be closed the weekday prior to the FND.

If futures positions are not closed before the relevant date, Saxo Markets will close the position on your behalf at the first available opportunity at the prevailing market rate. Any resulting costs, gains or losses will be passed on to you.
