Standard Delivery

The physical delivery of a matured futures contract shall follow the standard delivery procedures and be completed within the delivery period provided by the futures contract. The delivery period refers to the five (5) consecutive trading days immediately after the last trading day of the futures contract. These five (5) consecutive trading days are called the First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Delivery Day respectively. The Fifth Delivery Day is the last delivery day.
