A small part which is derived from Forex market is the Currency Future, also known as foreign exchange future or FX future where the volume of trading is 1% related to overall FX market. The commodities and index trade of Forex future operates the same as other FX market works. These are typically future contracts where at specific date a currency is exchanged in future exchange price rate which was fixed on purchase date.
If you are beginner in trade market, Forex future is not suggested as it needs to know and understand whole of FX market, as foreign exchange future is derivative of FX market which includes risk too. This Currency Future is also used to speculate as well as for hedging.
Speculation: A trader can speculate the trade and also can take risk by attempting to gain profit from exchange rate rise and fall.
Hedging: An investors can enter transactions on behalf to prevent complete loss such that to enclose or separate by a hedge against FX risk.
The basic difference between FX market and FX future is that, Forex market are traded under currency brokers whereas, futures based currencies are traded where only exchanges of currency exist which are more easier to controlled such as CME (Chicago Mercantile Exchange). Typically, foreign exchange future is based on two currency exchange rate, which is settled in money cash.
FX future are technically future market, where underlying currency such as EUR foreign exchange future exchange rate based on Euro to US dollar exchange rate. Similarly, British ponds to US dollar exchange rate, where British pond is the underlying currency.
Currency Future is highly recommended as it does not go through difficulties as like currency market goes through, such as those currency brokers who trade against and not on basis of centralized pricing done with their clients.
