A forward contract is a private, cash-market agreement between a buyer and seller for the future delivery of a commodity at an agreed upon price. Unlike futures contracts, forward contracts are not standardized and not transferable.[1] A clearing house does not stand betweenbuyer and seller to guarantee performance of the forward contract.
