Types of Foreign Exchange

Spot Forex

In Spot Forex trading, trades are done by an agreement between two parties to buy one currency against selling another currency at an agreed price for settlement on the spot date. The exchange rate at which the transaction is done is called the spot exchange rate.Its delivery date is 2 business days after the trade is initiated. (more)


Non-Deliverable Forwards (NDFs)


In Non-Deliverable Forwards (NDF) trading, a cash-settled, short-term forward contract on a thinly traded or non-convertible foreign currency, has no physical settlement. Profit or loss at the time at the settlement date, settled against an agreed fixing rate at maturity

NDFs are mainly used when there is a need to hedge against a currency that does not have a deliverable market offshore, including Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), Indian Rupee (INR), Indonesia Rupiah (IDR), Taiwan Dollar (TWD), Korean Won (KRW), Chinese Yuan (CNY), Philippine Peso (PHP) and Brazilian Real (BRL). As such, NDFs provide an offshore mechanism to hedge currencies which were previously considered "unhedgeable"; either due to emerging markets, illiquidity or regulatory constraints.  (more)
