The forward market is the informal over-the-counter financial market by which contracts for future delivery are entered into. Standardized forward contracts are called futures contracts and traded on a futures exchange.

It should not be confused with the futures market, as

  • Future contracts are traded in exchanges whereas a forward Contract is traded over the counter.
  • The forward market is highly customized.
  • Though the forward market is not exchange traded, chances of parties defaulting are very low.
