Interest Rate Futures

    Trading in interest rate futures enables investors to hedge interest rate risks and in turn reduces the overall cost of borrowing and financing. Interest rate futures allow the buyer and seller to lock in the price of the interest-bearing asset for a future date.

    Interest rate futures contracts include Treasury-bill futures, Treasury-bond futures and Eurodollar futures.
