LikiditeFutures işlem sözleşmeleri organize borsalarda işlem gördüğünden dolayı ikincil bir piyasadır.

Many banks and large corporations will use FRAs to hedge future interest rate or foreign exchange risks. The buyer insures against the risk of rising interest rates, while the seller hedges against the risk of falling interest rates. Other parties who use interest rate agreements in the future are speculators who only want to make bets on future changes in the direction of interest rates.  Development exchange operations in the 1980s offered organizations an alternative to FRA for hedging and speculation. As transactions are made on the stock exchange, the parties do not need to know each other. In addition, most contracts do not go to physical delivery.
Futures contracts are at risk of being cancelled. Buyers and sellers recognize the brbini. Seller may not be able to deliver the financial products or products indicated at the end of the period, or Buyer may not accept delivery. Credit risk is still present in futures contracts, but there is no such risk in futures contracts. There is a risk that, if they liquidate the FRA and the interest rate has been unfavourable in the market, the borrower would accept a loss of compensation in cash. . . .
