Foreign exchange (FX), or forex, refers to a system that facilitates the transaction of currencies from different countries. It is performed through credit instruments, such as bills of foreign currency, bank drafts and telephonic transfers. The fund transfer functions through an electronic network of banks, financial institutions, brokers and individual traders. Forex also finds extensive applications for transferring funds to support the exchange of various goods and services between nations.
Growing urbanization and digitalization in both the emerging and developed economies are among the key factors driving the growth of the market. The key features of FX, such as minimal trading costs, 24x7 trading opportunities, high transactional transparency and liquidity, have favored its widespread acceptance across the globe. Furthermore, the availability of electronic platforms and the provision of improved security mechanisms for trading are also providing a boost to the market growth. Various internet-based platforms are available to the users for conveniently exchanging currencies between countries while ensuring the delivery of goods and services in a secure and centralized setting. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the availability of outright forward and currency option, are creating a positive outlook for the market growth. Outright forward enables the trader to lock the current exchange rate, which further protects the investor, exporter or importer from future rate fluctuations. On the other hand, the currency option refers to a contractual document that establishes an obligation to purchase or trade currency at a specific rate.
