An instrument is defined as the logical container for one or many product-contract combinations. Each instrument carries a property and is actionable for the purposes of order entry and trade reporting. An instrument is referenced by a numeric identifier in Delta1, this identifier is referred to as a marketplace security id or MPSecID. Block and EFP transactions utilizing security futures are reportable to the Delta1 trade reporting engine as off-exchange, bilaterally negotiated transactions. All matched trades or reported transactions that occur on Delta1 are cleared as a security future with the appropriate designation (spread, EFP, block, or outright).

What are Products and Contracts?

A product refers to a security future issue with defining characteristics and a contract refers to the expiration instance of that product. Products have codes used in exchange reports, audit trails, clearing house files, and back office systems.

  • All Delta1 trades clear as a product-contract, where product-contract is the combination of a product and an available contract.
  • Only product-contracts are settled
  • Open interest can only be carried in a product-contract

Below are some examples of product and contract configurations (note that a single product can have multiple contracts):
