Currency Derivative Update – Apr’24

In this article, we will discuss:

In accordance with the latest Reserve Bank of India (RBI) circular (RBI/2023-24/108 A. P. (DIR Series) Circular No. 13 dated January 5, 2024), we wish to notify you of important updates regarding your positions in Exchange Traded Currency Futures and Options.

Key Updates

  • Hedging Permitted: As per Clause 3.4 of Annexure 1 of the mentioned RBI circular, positions in Currency Futures and Options are allowed solely for the purpose of hedging. Speculative trading in these instruments is strictly prohibited.
  • Non-Hedging Positions: It is essential to note that any position that does not hedge against currency risk is not allowed. Consequently, we urge you to review your open positions to ensure compliance.
  • Mandatory Squaring Off: You must square off all open positions in Currency Futures and Options by the close of the market on April 4, 2024. Failure to comply will result in automatic squaring off by the system after 4:45 PM on the same day.
  • Trade Restrictions: Please be aware that new trades in Currency Derivatives have been blocked in CO, BO, MIS, and NRML to prevent non-compliant positions.

Action Required

  • Review your current positions in Currency Futures and Options.
  • Ensure all positions align with hedging requirements and are not speculative.
  • Square off any open positions by April 4, 2024, to avoid automatic closure.
  • You will not be allowed to take any fresh positions in the currency segment from April 4, 2024, but you will be able to exit your existing positions.

Monitoring & Compliance

We will upload all Currency Derivatives positions in MIS (Intraday) on April 4, 2024.
