Why is there a difference between the Spot rate and the Forward rate ?
The Spot rate refers to the immediate exchange rate while the Forward rate refers to the future exchange rate agreed upon in Forward contracts.
The difference is due to what we call 'the interest rate differential', a difference in the interest rate between two currencies in a pair. If one currency has an interest rate of 3% and the other has an interest rate of 1%, it has a 2% interest rate differential.
Now let's take an example based on the most commonly traded currency pair in the world: EUR / USD. Let's assume the interest rate for EUR is -0.4%, and the USD interest rate is 0.5%. If the EUR / USD spot value is 1.18, then the forward rate will be 1.1906.
1.1906 = 1.18 *
(1 + 0.5%)
(1 - 0.4%)
