A market in which participants agree to trade some commodity, security or foreign exchange at a fixed price at some future date. Unlike futures and options, trading in forward markets does not occur on organised exchanges but through the forex traders of financial institutions. Forward currency contracts are not transferable instruments and settlement is usually expected to be through actual delivery of currencies. See also futures market.
