DISCLAIMERS: An event-based future is a contract whose payout depends on the outcome of a yes OR no proposition. This type of future typically relates to whether a particular asset’s price rises above or falls below a specified price within a certain period. Event Based Futures do not give the holder the right to buy or sell the specified asset. When an event-based Future expires, the holder receives either a pre-determined amount of cash or no payment. When you trade event-based futures, you risk the total amount you must pay for the trade and all applicable rates, such as commission, routing, clearing, and execution. For example, if you buy a contract at $5 plus all applicable fees, there is a $20 maximum payout; no matter how high or low the price, the amount credited/debited from your account is limited to $20.
