The forex futures market is a derivative of the world’s largest financial market, the forex market. Although this forex derivative makes up only one one-hundredth of the total forex market daily trading volume of US$1 trillion, it is considered one of the best forex trading methods amongst traders. Like traditional futures contracts, forex futures contracts are simply the buying or selling of a specific currency at a set price, time, contract size and location. These publically traded contracts are traded on a number of futures exchanges around the world, the most popular being the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
Forex futures exchanges standardize each contract, allowing them to have their own unique characteristics. For example, CAD/USD futures have a contract size of CAD $100,000, while the CHF/USD contract size 125,000 Swiss francs.
Compared to spot contracts, forex futures spreads are significantly lower. This allows traders with limited funds to more conveniently invest in forex futures
The forex futures transaction cost is basically the fee charged by exchanges for buying/selling a contract. Forex futures transaction costs is also considerably lower, allowing for a more lucrative trading experience.
The relatively high forex futures leverage will give a potential significant boost to the trader’s return on investment.
