TOKYO, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Nikkei futures and options
contracts expiring in December were forecast to
settle at 22,590.66, market participants said on Friday, citing
estimates by brokerages.
The closely watched settlement price, known in Japan as the
special quotation, or "SQ", is calculated from the opening
prices of the 225 shares in the Nikkei average on the second
Friday of the month.
It is calculated monthly for options and every three months
for futures. The official settlement price will be announced
after the market closes on Friday.
