Spot transactions take place over a two day delivery transaction period with the exception of some currency pairs. Spot transactions differ from futures contracts, which usually have the duration of a three month period. The spot transaction trade is a form of direct exchange between two currencies within the minimum amount of time and does not involve a contract but cash. The interest in spot transactions is not included.
In forward transaction, money is not exchanged until an agreement upon a future date. A buyer and seller consent on an exchange rate for any date in the future, and the transaction occurs on that date, despite of what the market rates are at that point in time. The duration of the trade can be a single day, a week, months or even years. Usually the date is decided by both parties. Then the forward contract is negotiated and agreed upon by both parties.
The most common type of forward transaction is the FX swap. In an FX swap, two parties exchange currencies for a certain length of time and agree to reverse the transaction at a later date. These are not standardized contracts and are not traded through an exchange.
CFD Futures are standardised and often traded on an exchange produced for this use. Futures contracts often included of any interest amounts and their average contract duration is usually three months.

Risk Warning: Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’) are complex financial products that are traded on margin. Trading CFDs carries a high level of risk since leverage can work both to your advantage and disadvantage. As a result, CFDs may not be suitable for all investors because you may lose all your invested capital. You should not risk more than you are prepared to lose. Before deciding to trade, you need to ensure that you understand the risks involved taking into account your investment objectives and level of experience. Past performance of CFDs is not a reliable indicator of future results. Most CFDs have no set maturity date. Hence, a CFD position matures on the date you choose to close an existing open position. Seek independent advice, if necessary. Please read FxPro’s full ‘Risk Disclosure Statement’.
