This type of contracts provides strong protection to the investors, importers or exporters from unexpected volatility effects on the exchange rates. Investors Europe can now offer you FX Forward Outrights with maturities from 1 day to 12 months on over 100+ currency pairs.
Non-Deliverable Forward is a cash-settled, and usually short-term forward contract. It includes the obligation of one party to pay another party the difference between the price of the Currency pair at the time of conclusion and at the time of the execution of the agreement. Non-deliverable forwards are helpful for offshore investors who want to trade with nations operating non-convertible currencies like INR, BRL, ARS etc. NDF has no physical exchange in the local currency and is settled in U.S. dollars, which gets around the nonconvertible part of the currency. This is a great choice for professional clients who can afford a minimum trade size requirement of 100k or equivalent, and margin of at least 8%. NDFs are tradable offline and a strategic choice for diversifying any portfolio.

Exotic FX Options
The binary option, also called the “all or nothing” is an option with a fixed profit. It is an exotic transaction, which at a specified time and depending on the fulfillment of the stipulated condition either provides a fixed amount of income (premium) or does not bring anything. Since the option is bought in advance at a fixed price, the grand total is either positive (in the amount of the difference between the premium and the price of the option) or negative (by the value of the option). As a rule, the size (modulus) of a positive result is less than negative. This type of contracts has no options with maturities less than a day.
