How we price our Spot US Crude and Brent Crude instruments

These Spot instruments are priced using the two futures contracts with the nearest expiry dates.

The closest one is called 'front month' and the next closest is called 'back month'.

Each day our daily funded price is adjusted slightly so that it slowly moves from the price of the 'front month' to the price of the 'back month'.

Overnight financing will be equal to the adjustment amount plus our standard overnight financing at +/- 2.5% annual charge.

Any position open at market close on a Friday will incur three days' charge as opposed to one.
