Settlement Method Deliverable
Termination Of Trading Trading terminates on the third last business day of the delivery month.
Trade At Marker Or Trade At Settlement Rules Trading at Settlement is available in the 1st active contract month subject to the requirements of Rule 524.A.  The active contract months are January, April, July and October.  The active contract month ceases to be TAS-eligible when it becomes the spot month, at which time the next active month becomes TAS-eligible.   Trading ceases daily at 1:05 PM ET.  Products eligible for TAS pricing trade off of a "Base Price" of 0 to create a differential (plus or minus 10 ticks at 0.10) versus the settlement in the underlying product on a 1 to 1 basis. A trade done at the Base Price of 0 corresponds to a "traditional" TAS trade which clears exactly at the final settlement price of the day.
