There are 4 basic types of transactions, and we cover them all and online as well:
Spot: Not an attractive name, but this is the most commonly used transaction in the Foreign Exchange market. It is an agreement to exchange currencies at a set rate, and normal settlement is 2 days later.
Same Day/Next day: If you are in a hurry we can speed up a Spot transaction to settle earlier. "Next day" is commonly called "Tom", but that doesn't mean that "Same day" is called "Jerry"!
Forward Contracts: This allows you to fix an exchange rate for a future point in time. Great if you want to eliminate uncertainty and potential risk.
Swaps: These allow you to change the value date of a contract to a different date. Whether it is a change of a few days or a few months, no problem. Swaps are only available on the "Dealer +" platform, or directly through our dealers.
We also do Limits, Stops, Alerts and Time Options if you need some more options.
It's Easy, and follow the 4 simple steps. Even better, it's free and there is no obligation to trade. Only use the account when and where you want to.
