Futures are financial contracts between a buyer and a seller to buy or sell an asset at an agreed price on a specified date in the future. The price approved by both parties is called the forward price, and the specific date of payment is called the delivery / expiration date.
Futures allow you to get financial results by opening deals on price fluctuations of a wide range of instruments: from wheat to American indices. For example, if an investor believes that the value of a particular instrument will increase, he or she buys futures contracts when the price falls, in order to sell them later when the value of the asset rises.
