About this data
The Derivative Exchanges Trading Hours (DTH) service provides timely and accurate information on
trading hours, non-trading days and settlement details.
A Derivative is a Financial Instrument and is a contract between two parties, the value of derivatives determined by fluctuations in the underlying asset.
In Derivatives, we cover both futures contracts and options contracts. A futures contract is a standardized
agreement between two parties committing one to buy and the other to sell a particular asset of specific quantity and at a predetermined price, at a specified date in future.
An options contract is a standardized agreement that gives the buyer the right but not the obligation to buy or sell a specific underlying
asset or future of a specified quantity at or by a specific date in the future.
