MAKING A MARKET is securities dealers showing both a bid and an offer for a particular maturity and type of secu­rity. This is not to be confused with a quote, which is a general indication of prices rather than a specific price at which a transaction may be executed.

FORWARD, in securities, is an agreement between two parties to exchange specific items, for example, two currencies, at a specified future date and a specified price.
