What is a SPOT, and FORWARD Contract?

Spot contract

Buy or sell a currency for immediate delivery. Spot contracts are suitable if you want to receive your currency quickly and efficiently while achieving the best rate available.

Forward contract

Fix an exchange rate at which you buy or sell currency for delivery at a later date (up to one year). Forward contracts protect against adverse currency movements and can be used to lock into favourable exchange rates.
