What are Futures?

Futures are financial contracts that define an agreement between two parties - a buyer and a seller - to trade an underlying asset at a specified price on or before a certain expiry date.

If the trade isn't made before the expiry date, it'll happen automatically upon expiration at the agreed-upon price as both parties are obligated to make the exchange.
