Trade at Settlement, or TAS, is a type of order execution for futures contracts that allows a market participant to express prices in relations to the daily settlement price of the underlying contract.

TAS allows a market participant to enter an order to buy or sell an eligible futures contract or spreads during the trading session at a price equal to the settlement price for that contract, or at a price above or below it.[1]

The benefits of TAS are it reduces uncertainty around the settlement price, prices contracts at or near the settlement price, can eb executed at any time of the pre-open or trading day and is available on CME Globex and available for block trades.

TAS is available at the CME Group, Intercontinental Exchange, London Metal Exchange]] and Shanghai Futures Exchange.[2]
