FX Forward Outrights & NDFs

FX Forward Outrights

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. It enables you to agree a price today (the FX forward price) at which two currencies will be exchanged on a predetermined date in the future.

At Saxo, we provide full electronic access to trade FX forward outrights in 100+ currency pairs with maturities from 1 day to 12 months.
