Whereas the FX spot market is for immediate currency trades, the FX forward market is the market for trading currencies for delivery at some point in the future. FX forward outrights enable you to agree a price today (the FX forward price) at which two currencies will be exchanged on a predetermined date in the future. FX swaps likewise enable you to agree a price today at which two transactions will be executed. An FX swap is a simultaneous purchase and sale, or vice versa, of one currency for another currency with two different value dates; two parties agree upon a currency exchange on one day and simultaneously agree to unwind or reverse that transaction on a specified date in the future.
At Saxo, we provide full electronic access to trade FX forward outrights and FX swaps in 130 currency pairs with maturities from 1 day to 12 months.
