Treasury Futures Contract
A futures contract in which one agrees to buy a U.S. Treasury security at a certain price at some stated date in the future, regardless of what the spot price is on that date. One buys a Treasury future if one expects Treasury securities to rise in price (because one wants to lock in the lower price). For the same reason, one sells a Treasury future if one expects the price to fall. Treasure futures are traded on the CBOT.
