In this instance the weekend position will roll into a new weekday position, with the same stops/limits attached to this.

Let's say you have a position on Wall Street still open at 8.40am AEST on a Monday. It will automatically be rolled into our existing weekday contracts when they open as normal on Monday morning at no charge.
Your weekday positions will NOT be affected by our offering of weekend indices unless you hold an existing weekend contract at 8.40am AEST on Monday, in which case the rolled over position will net off against any weekday contract held in the opposite direction4.
