What is an NDF?

A Non-Deliverable Forward (NDF) is an outright forward contract in which counterparties settle the difference between the contracted NDF price or rate and the prevailing spot price or rate on an agreed notional amount.

Why do people trade them?

NDFs are prevalent in some countries where forward FX trading has been banned by the government (usually as a means to prevent exchange rate volatility).

Is Leverage Still Available?

High Leverage is available when trading NDF's (20:1 Leverage).
This means that with a US$ 1,000 deposit you can open a position of US$ 20,000.
