forward dealing

forward dealing
Dealing in commodities, securities, currencies, freight, etc. , for delivery at some future date at a price agreed at the time the contract (called a forward contract) is made. This form of trading enables dealers and manufacturers to cover their future requirements by hedging their more immediate purchases (see hedge). Strictly, a forward contract differs from a futures contract in that the former cannot be closed out by a matching transaction, whereas a futures contract can, and often is. However, this distinction is not always adhered to and the terms are sometimes used synonymously.
