Deposits with a specified maturity date (usually the next day or the following week) are long-term repurchase contracts. A trader sells securities to a counterparty with the agreement that he will buy them back at a higher price at a given time. In this agreement, the counterparty receives the use of the securities for the duration of the transaction and receives interest that is indicated as the difference between the initial selling price and the purchase price. The interest rate is set and interest is paid at maturity by the trader. A repo term is used to invest cash or to finance assets when the parties know how long they must do so.

An open pension contract (also called on demand) works in the same way as an appointment period, except that the trader and counterparty accept the transaction without setting the due date. On the contrary, trade can be terminated by both parties by notifying the other party before an agreed daily period. If an open deposit is not completed, it is automatically crushed every day. Interest is paid monthly and the interest rate is reassessed by mutual agreement at regular intervals. The interest rate on an open pension is generally close to the federal rate.
An open repo is used to invest cash or finance assets if the parties do not know how long it will take them. But almost all open agreements are concluded in one to two years.
