How to Place a Contract

Futures contracts are incorporated into the exchange’s trading system based on the exchange’s decision. When considering the inclusion of a standard contract, both the exchange and the initiator must establish:

  • The settlement and guarantee scheme of the contract (one-time premium, security deposit, variation margin).
  • The trading requirements (session frequency, etc.).

The proposed futures contract terms are subject to a legal review before being accepted by the exchange.

Once the contract is integrated into the system, the exchange independently assumes the responsibility of notifying the stock market regulator (Gosfinnadzor) about the contract’s format, as required by law.
