Grain maturity calendar

ASX Grains Futures

ASX Grains futures are deliverable contracts.

Delivery Periods:

  • commence on the second business day of the contract month; and
  • end at 3pm (trading ceases at midday) on the the third Thursday of the contract month, which is the Last Trading Day and Maturity Date, provided it is a Trading Day.

Holders of long (bought) futures positions should note that once the Delivery Period commences, allocation of deliverable stock is an automated random process that could occur at anytime.

ASX has developed a Contract Maturity and Delivery Dates Calendar for you to keep close at hand on your desktop. Order your free Calendar.
