What are USDT Quarterly contracts?
USDT quarterly contracts are futures contracts that have a limited time and will expire based on their respective calendar cycles, for example BTC M 1231 is a quarterly futures contract that will expire 3 months after the issuance date.
Quarterly vs Perpetual contracts – What’s the difference?
In a literal sense, the Perpetual contract meaning is that there is no expiration date, aka eternal, continuous, so the contract will never expire because there is no settlement date.
So when we open a position in Perpetual contract, our trading position will forever run and will not be closed by the system, as long as our capital is able to pay the funding fee and is not liquidated. So we can open positions indefinitely.
Now the difference with quarterly, from the name alone it is clear, quarter which means three months. for this quarterly contract, the time limit is 3 months. So when we open a position quarterly the contract will be automatically closed by the system when the validity period expires.
Advantages of trading USDT Quarterly contracts
One of the advantages of quarterly contracts is that they are free of funding fees, in contrast to each contract that is subject to funding fees every 8 hours.
