outright futures position

Definition

Position taken by a person who is ready to risk everything on the price of the underlying increasing or decreasing and goes long or short accordingly. The alternate trade that can be adopted instead of an outright futures position is a spread trade. A spread limits the profits that can be made but at the same time the loss incurred is also reduced.
