Settlement Price

Settlement Price
The average price at which a contract trades, calculated at both the open and close of each trading day.

Settlement prices are necessary for determining whether gains or losses were made on a contract held during a certain time period. Settlement prices are also required to determine if an investor's margin account requires a margin call for any day a particular security is held.
