Label: Foreign Exchange Derivative Contracts
Concept Guidance:
This is the value, as at the relevant date, of both foreign exchange and gold derivative contracts, consistent with the classification and measurement basis used for derivatives by institutions in accordance with accounting standards.A foreign exchange contract is any contract that transfers the exchange rate risk of an underlying asset from one party to another.A gold contract is any contract that transfers the gold price risk associated with an underlying asset from one party to another.Derivatives are generally defined as those instruments/contracts, where the value is based on other products, and/or on prices associated with financial products. Derivative contracts involve:- Future delivery, receipt or exchange of financial items such as cash or another derivative instrument; or- Future exchange of real assets for financial items where the contract may be tradeable and has a market value.The contracts can either be binding on both parties (e.g. as with a currency swap) or subject to the exercise by one party of a right contained within the contract (as with options).Report this item regardless of whether favourable or unfavourable to the reporting entity. 
Form-Specifc Guidance:
An ADI may net claims and obligations arising from market-related contracts across both the banking and trading books with a single counterparty if covered by eligible bilateral netting agreements (refer to AGN 112.3 for details on how to calculate the credit equivalent amount of these contracts).
Report only those contracts that give rise to off-balance sheet credit exposures in the credit equivalent amount column. ADIs may refer to APRA where they are unclear as to which category is appropriate for a particular market-related transaction when calculating the credit equivalent amount of that transaction for capital adequacy purposes.

Exemption from capital weighting is permitted for:
- foreign exchange (except gold) contracts that have an original maturity of 14 calendar days or less; and
- instruments traded on futures and options exchanges that are subject to daily mark-to-market and margin payments.
Market risk charge of market-related contracts held in the trading book will be captured under the Market Risk Form.

While not intended as an exhaustive list, Foreign Exchange derivative contracts and Gold derivative contracts may include the following:
- cross currency swaps (including cross currency interest rate swaps);
- forward foreign exchange contracts;
- currency futures;
- currency options purchased;
- hedge contracts; and
- any other instruments of a similar nature.

Outstanding spot transactions should be treated as forward foreign exchange contracts.

Netting should not be applied when reporting amounts within the Statement of Derivative Activity.
