OneChicago OCX.Weekly Futures with next day stock settlement
COMING SOON — PENDING REGULATORY APPROVALS
Press Release – OneChicago Launches OCX.Weekly® Futures
OCX.Weekly futures are physically delivered.
The delivery cycle is shortened to be Expiration+1, meaning OCX.Weekly futures expire on Friday with physical delivery settling on Monday in contrast to the traditional Wednesday (T+3) settlement.
OCX.Weekly futures will overlay the same underlyings as our OCX.Original (“1C”) futures and our OCX.NoDivRisk futures.
OCX.Weekly futures will list each Friday, expiring the following Friday.
