A futures contract is an agreement between two parties, where one party undertakes to buy and the other one to sell, on a specific future date (expiry date) and at a price agreed at the time of executing the transaction, a specified amount of the underlying instrument or to make equivalent cash settlement. The underlying instruments can be e.g. shares, FX, exchange indices, etc.
Parties entering into futures contracts have certain expectations as to the changes in the value of, for instance, indices. The buyer expects the index value to grow while the seller assumes it will go down. Ultimately, the party that made the right projections wins.

- Investors have the opportunity to hedge their portfolio value against the consequences of price fluctuations without the need to incur any considerable costs, which may increase the potential profit or losses (as the case may be), which should be remembered at all times. Futures contracts were first traded on the WSE on 14 Feb 2005. The specificity of futures is that Government Bonds are fixed-interest underlying instruments, and these contracts are executed by delivery of Government Bonds meeting strictly defined criteria. (A full name of the instrument is: futures contracts for fixed–interest Treasury Bonds, issued by the Minister of Finance, with issue worth no less than PLN 5bn and maturity of no less than 2 years and nine months and no more than 5 years and six months after the contract execution date). Futures contracts are traded in the continuous trading system from 9a.m. to 4.30p.m., and the nominal value of a contract is PLN 100,000. The price, just like for bonds, is given in percentage points per PLN 100 of the contract nominal value, e.g. 99,65. As the multiplier for the contract is PLN 1,000, e.g. buy transaction of the contract at 99,65 means that the transaction value is PLN 99,650 (99,65 x PLN 1,000). Contracts for Treasury bonds are the first derivative at the WSE, to be executed by delivery. The deliverables may be Treasury Bonds meeting specific criteria set by the WSE and the National Depository for Securities (KDPW), featuring among others the following:

A warrant is a financial instrument and its price is driven by the price or value of the underlying instrument. Such underlying instrument can be a security, currency, economic ratio (e.g. index, interest rate) or any other value. From a legal perspective, warrant represents an unconditional and irrevocable obligation of its issuer to pay the settlement amount to the eligible warrant holders. For a call warrant, this amount is calculated as a positive difference between the underlying instrument price and the exercise price defined by the issuer. For a put warrant, the settlement amount is the positive difference between the exercise price and the price of the underlying instrument.

Option is a financial instrument being a contract, whereby option holder is entitled to buy or sell an underlying instrument at a set price (called exercise price) to maturity (called expiry date). The counterparty (usually a financial institution) writing an option guarantees that right. Please note that the option holder gets the right, whereas option writer contracts the obligation. Depending on whether the right concerns buying or selling, we have two types of options:
- call option; which gives the holder the right to buy certain shares before certain date at a certain price,
- put option); which gives the holder the right to sell before certain date at a certain price.
The key difference between option and warrant is the writer. Anyone can write an option and the number of options may be unlimited. In the case of warrants, the writer is one entity which takes the writer’s position. Millennium DM S.A. offers you the possibility to enter into options for WIG 20 index.

- Option buyer is eligible for option exercise and receiving the settlement amount from option writer.
- Options ensure adequate portfolio diversification where the portfolio consists of an appropriate number of various financial instruments to mitigate significantly the risk of price fluctuations.

Index Participation Units (IPU)
