What is a Forward Contract?
A forward contract is a contract agreed upon by a producer and a consumer to exchange a certain amount of resources for a specific amount of money. Forward contracts are not made through an exchange. There are two reasons to buy or sell a forward contract: to ensure supply, and to protect against dropping demand.
