Weeklies for futures

Discussion in 'Financial Futures' started by traderjb, Oct 25, 2006.

  1. Would weekly expiration futures contract work for financial futures? For example, most spot currency institutional trades are two day affairs (well so I've read). Indeed, may financial transactions are of an extremely short-term nature. Wouldn't a weekly (or even a monthly) expired contract work out? Don't some energy contracts on the NYMEX have monthly expiration dates? Why not currency futures?
