Expiration of a CFD on the MetaTrader platform

On the MetaTrader platform, each CFD instrument has an expiration date.

CFD positions are not tradable beyond the contract expiry date and do not roll over.

  • Clients will be able to close their CFD positions until this expiration date.
  • Approximately 3-5 days before expiring, a new CFD based on the next future contract will begin trading and become available to open new positions.
  • During this period, no new positions can be opened in the expiring CFD contract.
  • Positions not closed by clients by this expiration date will be closed automatically by Markets.com Dealing Desk at the last available price.
