e-Forex Magazine | Does e-FX still require a human touch?By Ian Daniels, Head of eFX Distribution, EMEA at Nomura The FX market has undergone profound changes in the past two decades as electronic trading has steadily broadened its reach. Beginning with the most commoditised markets – G10 spot – FX on electronic platforms has come to include a significant proportion of the forwards, swaps and, most recently, non-deliverable forwards (NDFs) and options markets.

I need to hedge a small amount of US Dollars ($10,000 or less) held in ARS (~600,000 more or less). I can't access NDFs and there is no NDF market (basically) if I could. I don't know a reliable Forex broker who trades ARS (suggestions welcome). Open to all ideas, including continuous conversion of currency at an exchange, Argentine beef futures (is there such a thing?) or other Argentine products, Argentine ETFs on the US market, etc. Background: American based in Buenos Aires. Access to ThinkOrSwim with US address/phone/ID. Able to open us-based accounts. Cannot use the Argentine banking system without some difficulty. Access to dollar Blue through trusted contacts. If this question is not smart, please help me restructure it and I will fix it ASAP. Thanks!

Understanding Non-Deliverable Forwards (NDF) A non-deliverable forward (NDF) is a two-party currency derivatives contract to exchange cash flows between the NDF and prevailing spot rates. The NDF market exists for countries with economically developing markets where their currency cannot be freely converted and are typically specified against the US Dollar. As with forward swaps, the cost of an NDF corresponds to the interest differential between the two currencies. Key benefits of clearing your NDF positions at ForexClear: Multilateral risk netting – reduces portfolio exposure and ultimately lowers initial margin requirements; 24-hour-a-day clearing, five days a week; Full STP workflow management – resulting in reduced operating risks and costs Non-deliverable Forwards (NDFs) are net cash settled forwards on thinly traded or regulated currencies. The difference between the contracted NDF price and the prevailing spot price is settled at maturity, usually in USD. Unlike spot forex, there is no physical delivery involved in NDFs.
