# CL HO and RBOB Settlement Examples

Example 1:

CL, RB, or HO Futures Settlement Description

Once the settlement of the designated active month has been derived, all other months, beginning with the nearest month and proceeding in chronological order, will settle using a VWAP of accumulated calendar spread transactions. Spread transactions must have traded between 14:28:00 - 14:30:00 ET, the calendar spread settlement period. For clarity, each month's settle will be derived using spread transactions in which the settling month is the deferred contract. (Example: during the month of October 2017 the March 18 settlement will take into account the spread trades occurring in Nov 17-Mch 18, Dec 17-Mch 18, Jan 18-Mch 18 and the Feb 18-Mch 18.  A transaction in Mch 18-June 18 would not be used to settle the Mch 18.)

November (Active) Contract (CLX7)

50.58

VWAP of 10,584 contracts of outright trade in the CLX7 (Active) contract.

December Contract (CLZ7)

50.90

Using CLX7-CLZ7 and CLX7 to imply outright settlement: outright value(50.58) - spread value(-.32) = (50.90) * spread volume(2326) / 1 month = spread volume(2326)

Implying settlement using implied outright settlements prices and total spread volume 2326; Blended VWAP of 50.90

January Contract (CLF8)

51.13

Using CLZ7-CLF8 and CLZ7 to imply outright settlement: outright value(50.90) - spread value(-.24) = (51.14) * spread volume(371) / 1 month = spread volume(371)

Using CLX7-CLF8 and CLX7 to imply outright settlement: outright value(50.58) - spread value(-.55) = (51.13) * spread volume(998) / 2 month = spread volume(499)

February Contract (CLG8)

51.26

Using CLF8-CLG8 and CLF8 to imply outright settlement: outright value(51.13) - spread value(-.13) = (51.26) * spread volume(328) / 1 month = spread volume(328)
