Settlement
Futures come with four maturities:
  • Perpetual: Never expire
  • Monthly: Expiring the last Friday of every month.
  • Quarterly: Expiring the last Friday of the month on the March quarterly cycle (March, June, September and December).
  • Semiannual: Expiring the last Friday of the month on the March quarterly cycle (March, June, September and December). Semiannual maturity is available for FI_BTCUSD and FI_ETHUSD contracts only.
Fixed maturity contract positions that are held to maturity are cash settled at the price set by our Index Provider.
Positions can be exited at any time before maturity by trading out of the position.

Linear fixed maturity contracts mature on Fridays at 8:00 UTC and settle within 15 minutes afterwards based on the Settlement Rate computed from the Index Provider
