Forward price

The price specified in a forward 

Contract

 for a specific commodity. The 

Forward

 price makes the forward 

Contract

 have no value when the 

Contract

 is written. However, if the value of the underlying commodity changes, the value of the forward 

Contract

 becomes positive or negative, depending on the 

Position

 held. Forwards are priced in a manner similar to futures. As with a 

Futures

 contract, the first step in pricing a 

Forward

 is to add the 

Spot

 price to the 

Cost of carry

 (interest forgone, convenience 

Yield

, storage costs and interest/dividend received on the underlying). However, unlike a 

Futures

 contract, the price may also include a premium for counterparty 

Credit

 risk, and there is not daily marking-to-market to minimize 

Default

 risk. If there is no 

Allowance

 for these 

Credit risk

, then the 

Forward

 price will equal the 

Futures

 price.
