Break Forward(redirected from Break Forwards)
A derivative of a forward contract in which the buyer agrees to sell the underlying forward at a discount to its current value. However, the buyer may cancel this agreement if the value of the underlying rises above a stated level. A break forward contract imitates an option contract and is used primarily on forwards in foreign exchange. See also: Deferred payment option.
