Position Management

Open Position

Once a trade has been registered an open position is created. The open position has a serie of rules:

  • Trades with opposite sign for the same contract are offset; for example, buying two futures of Annual 2022 contract and  selling three futures from the same contract has an open position of one Annual 2022 sold future contract .
  • In segreggated client' accounts, which have a "gross record", different trades for the same contract are not offset; following the previous example, buying two futures of Annual 2022 contract and selling three futures from the same contract has an open position of two buying futures and three selling futures for Annual 2022 contract.

Although clearing occurs at the open position level, trades are live until the expiry date.
