Foreign exchange spot trading


Foreign exchange spot trading

Foreign exchange spot trading is buying one currency with a different currency for immediate delivery, rather than for future delivery.

The standard settlement timeframe for Foreign Exchange Spot trades is T+2 days, i.e., 2 days from the date of trade execution. A Notable exception is the USD/CAD currency pair which settles T+1.
