Methods and systems for trading of future contracts for intangible assets are provided. The methods and systems allow traders to access information on intangible asset futures contracts and future contract funds and to execute their trades in a computer-based futures exchange. Intangible assets include future royalties or revenues from artistic works or future salaries of professionals, for instance. The futures exchange system provides real-time trading status on the futures contracts or funds as well as detailed information on contract terms. Quotes may be matched automatically by the futures exchange. Sensitivity analysis of various factors on the outcome of futures contracts valuation may be provided. Additionally, offer and contract terms for categories of intangible assets may be standardized in the futures exchange for trading simplification.
