Futures market rolls


Recommended Posts

Currently there is an option to auto-roll futures positions, usually 1 day prior to expiry.

I would find it very useful to have the option to execute a roll myself on the platform without having the risk of being "legged up" (executing one side of the roll and the other side moving away before you can execute that side).  I guess it could take the form of a "roll now" button that is greyed out until IG lists the far month.  When the button is clicked, it will buy near and sell far (or vice versa) simultaneously, thus rolling your position with no legging risk.

    • personally, I hardly ever go short. I invest for the long term and I spread my investment over time. So when it goes down, I keep buying.
    • I already answered on Reddit, but I am happy to share also the answer here 😉 As indicated on GraniteShares’ website, “Securityholders will own fewer ETP Securities than before the consolidation but the Value per ETP will be proportionally higher. As a result, the value of a Securityholder’s investment will not change […]. If the consolidation results in any fractional securities, they will automatically be redeemed in cash […].” Note that each is supported by example on the website. The amount invested will not drop from $17,850 to $8,500 after of the reverse split. It will not change, saved for eventual fractional securities. The objective of the product remains the same as well and its performance will not be affected by the reverse split. As a reminder 3STS tracks, excluding fees and other adjustments, the performance of the Solactive Daily Leveraged 3x Short Tesla Inc Index that seeks to provide -3 times the daily performance of Tesla Inc shares.
