Currency Futures

Currently in India, futures contracts of 4 currencies are traded against the Indian Rupee (INR). US Dollar Indian Rupee (USD INR) currency futures were the first to be introduced in Aug 2008 and have seen a 1500% burst in volume growth in this period.
On Feb 1, 2010 the trading of Euro (€) Rupee (EUR INR), Pound Sterling (£) Rupee (GBP INR) and Yen (¥) Rupee (YEN INR) was introduced in India. As in the case of USD INR, trading happens on 2 exchanges – NSE and MCX-SX.
