The contract will be executed quarterly in the intraday clearing period on the first business day of March, June, September and December at the last closing price of the RGBI Index multiplied by one hundred. Contract series with settlement in June 2022 will be admitted to trading.

    Specifications for the new instruments are available on the Moscow Exchange website.

    Deliverables futures on the OFZ basket are currently available on the Derivatives Market.
