Setting Implieds

You are viewing X_TRADER Version 7.17 and higher. For earlier versions, click here

Implied prices and quantities derive from direct orders in a combination of outright contracts and spreads/strategies. Implied pricing evolved at exchanges that trade contracts, spreads and strategies involving different combinations of the contract months.

Example: A bid in one contract month and an offer in a second contract month combine to imply a bid in the spread between the two months.

By calculating and displaying implied prices and quantities, exchanges found they could improve the best Bid/Ask price or add liquidity to certain contracts or strategies.
