In today’s global marketplace, businesses engage in international trade and transactions more than ever before. With this expansion comes the necessity for efficient and effective foreign exchange (FX) management. At Capex Currency, we understand the challenges businesses face in navigating currency fluctuations and mitigating risk. That’s why we offer a suite of corporate FX tools designed to empower businesses to take control of their currency exchange processes. Two of our flagship tools are Limit Orders and Forward Contracts.

Limit Orders

Limit Orders are a proactive approach to FX management that allow businesses to set a target exchange rate at which they are willing to buy or sell currency.

Here’s how it works:

  • Define Your Target Rate: Specify the desired exchange rate at which you want to execute your transaction.
  • Set Your Parameters: Choose the currency pair, the amount of currency to exchange, and the expiration date for the Limit Order.
  • Monitor the Market: We keep an eye on currency fluctuations and market trends as your Limit Order is active.
  • Automatic Execution: When the market reaches your specified target rate, the Limit Order is automatically executed, securing your desired exchange rate without the need for constant monitoring.

Benefits of Limit Orders:

  • Precision: Set specific target rates tailored to your business’s needs and objectives.
  • Automation: Eliminate the need for constant monitoring of the market with automatic execution.
  • Risk Management: Mitigate the impact of adverse currency movements by securing favorable exchange rates.

Forward Contracts

Forward Contracts provide businesses with the ability to lock in an exchange rate for a future date, offering protection against currency volatility.

Here’s how they work:

  • Agree on a Rate: Negotiate and agree upon a fixed exchange rate for a future transaction.
  • Specify the Terms: Determine the currency pair, the amount of currency, and the maturity date for the Forward Contract.
  • Secure the Rate: Once the terms are agreed upon, the exchange rate is locked in, providing certainty and stability for future transactions.
  • Execute the Transaction: On the maturity date of the Forward Contract, the agreed-upon exchange rate is applied to the transaction, regardless of market fluctuations.

Benefits of Forward Contracts:

  • Certainty: Protect your business from adverse currency movements by securing a fixed exchange rate in advance.
  • Budgeting and Planning: Gain predictability in financial planning and budgeting with known exchange rates for future transactions.
  • Risk Mitigation: Shield your business from currency volatility and fluctuations that could impact your bottom line.
