A foreign exchange, or Forex, swap is a simultaneous purchase and sale of identical amounts of one currency for another with two different value dates. One part of the trade is a foreign exchange spot trade, and the other is a foreign exchange forward transaction. [1]

It is not to be confused with a currency swap.
