Different types of Currency Contracts

Spot Rates
Spot rate contract is undertaken when you buy currency at the prevailing exchange rate at the time of the transaction and make payment within two working days. A Spot Rates transaction is mainly used when depositing payments on a property. Or for full payment if the funds to pay for the transaction are available.

Forward Currency Contracts
A forward contract is when you fix the exchange rate now for a specific date from one to 24 months in the future. As an example, your final payment for a home abroad may be the equivalent of £200,000. You fix that currency exchange rate today with a payment to guarantee the exchange rate. Private clients will have to pay for at least 10% of the value straight away and pay the balance on or before the maturity of the contract. This type of deal is perfect for businesses who would like to order goods abroad and fix the price at the rate today in case the exchange rate varies in the wrong direction.
