Synthetic future contractsmay be defined as non interrupting futures. Clients can look the whole trading history of each contract (starting from the very beginning till the current rates) on a single graph in real time on their trading terminals.
It is a known fact that ordinary Futures have expiration dates that force traders to take note of the date of expiry of any future contracts and make sure to close their positions before the indicated day. Otherwise, an Exchange (futures issuer) will automatically close the position, and the resulting costs will pass on to clients. That is why trading without any expiration dates is a significant advantage over trading futures with fixed time intervals.
