    a contract is entered into that will result

    In the cash market, a contract is entered into that will result in immediate exchange of the agreed-upon items.
    (Technical analysis: the complete resource for financial market technicians / Charles D. Kirkpatrick and Julie Dahlquist.)

    Is it possible to say:
    In the cash market, a contract is entered into that that will result in immediate exchange of the agreed-upon items.

    Thanks.

    No. Why would you want to? The original sentence is absolutely fine.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It is difficult to explain. Probably it has had something to do with the word 'into' ('into something (that) that will result').

    But now I read it as '[...], something is done (a contract is entered into) that will result in [...]. Am I right?

    Thanks.

    Weeeelllllll, sort of. It would fit a very unlikely context (where the first 'that' is a conjunction and the second 'that' is a demonstrative pronoun). But it's not possible to use it with the same meaning as the original - which is what Ems was saying.
