Forward Exchange Rate

Rate applying to currency exchange agreed at present but settled at an agreed time in the future.

For example, the 3-month EUR/USD forward rate is the amount in dollars to pay for one euro 3 months from now, if agreed today.

Differences between forward rates and spot exchange rate depend on interest rates on the two currencies and length of the period.
