What is Ex Pit Transaction?

Definition of Ex Pit Transaction

The closing out of a futures position off the exchange floor. Effected when two hedgers, one long and one short, make a private deal in the cash market, and no longer need their (equal and opposite) futures contracts to hedge. The hedgers contact the exchange and request the contracts be nullified without making a trade on the floor. This must be done (1) to ensure neither contract results in delivery/the requirement to deliver; (2) to properly reflect open interest; and (3) to eliminate the uncertainty of the fill price should a trade actually be done to offset the positions. Extremely rare. Also known as an EFP transaction, an exchange-for-physicals transaction or an against-actuals transaction.
