Settlement Method

The settlement method for single stock future, single stock option contracts, and commodity futures is physical delivery. For single stock futures and single stock options, physical delivery is realized by exchange of dematerialized equities over the settlement or strike price of the contract respectively.

The settlement method for index options and futures, currency futures, gold futures, energy futures, steel scrap and TLREF futures are cash settlement. For options profit/loss is determined by the difference between strike price and settlement price at the end of the maturity date.
