Expiry Rate Rules
Rumelia Capital calculates our expiry rates based on a weighted average of the last rates of three major feed providers at closing time. The following formulas refer to our common expiry rate rules. However, some expiry rate rules may differ between assets from time to time or vary according to their sector. For information regarding specific assets, please refer to our asset index.
Expiry Rate Rule Formulas:
Commodities: (Bid +Ask)/2
Indices: (Bid +Ask)/2
Please note that we are continuously updating our asset list to better serve our clients. If you would like to trade an asset that we do not currently provide, please let us know. We will do our best to add additional assets and accommodate your requests whenever possible.
Expiry Rate Terms
- Commodities refer Earth-based resources such as oil, gold, and wheat.
- Currencies refer to generally accepted, government-issued forms of money such as the U.S. dollar or the euro.
- Stocks represent shares of a company such as Apple, HSBC, or Walmart.
- Indices measure bundles of stocks, which give a general picture of the state of the market. Examples of indices are the Dow Jones or the Nasdaq.
- Assets have bid and ask quotes for buying and selling assets.
- A bid refers to the last-known price quoted by the average feed list before the expiry time for selling an asset.
- An ask refers to the last-known price quoted by the average feed list before the expiry time for buying an asset. At Rumelia Capital, our expiry rates are calculated by adding the bid and ask prices, and then dividing them by two: (Bid+Ask)/2.
- The Last Quoted Price is the last-known price that was paid for an asset prior to the option’s expiry time.
