The importance of overnight rate benchmarks has been increasing in the last years and is expected to increase further in the coming years. They could take over the IBOR-like benchmarks as the most important interest rate benchmarks. In this note we propose a new design for an overnight-linked futures. The design borrows on a swap futures design previously proposed by the author. The proposed design creates a potential unified approach to many interest rate futures and contributes to a common language between OTC and ETD markets. The design also reduces some of the drawbacks in existing futures.
