Volatility derivatives settlement amounts



Hi all, 


Can someone please let me know the process around cash settlement on the "volatility index' which i presume is a proxy for the short months on VIX futures? (and do they expire and roll like other options/futures?


i guess this is explained somewhere but i could not find it and if someone could  point me in the right directtion i would appreciate it?

Hi - you can see expiry details on the deal ticket 'info' section as below. In this instance...


Settlement: Settles based on the Special Opening Quotation of the Volatility Index, as reported by CBOE +/- IG dealing spread.

Expiry date: 18/04/18

Last dealing date: 18/04/18 13:00



The roll / expiry will be dependant on your personal settings. Please check your settings in MyIG, or give our Sales Traders a call to check the position you have open specifically.

    • Dear All, On the September 22 I could not sell Presto automation stock $PRST.  I have reported that to IG helpdesk, had multiple calls etc. It is not obvious where this process is going and I need my refund money ASAP. I have sent the screenshots etc.
