Given traders who are sufficiently risk-neutral in the market, the futures price is likened to the expected future spot price. The forward interest rate would then correspond to the estimate of the market where the cash rate will be when the contract matures. This gain is obviously speculative, because it depends on the fact that you are right, what will be the price of the yen against the dollar in 3 months. If it turns out that a dollar in three months, when the futures contract arrives, was worth only 355 yen, you do nothing. If the dollar is only worth 350 yen at that time, you will lose— you have to pay more than a dollar to get the 355 yen you want to sell for a dollar under the futures contract. A borrower could enter into an advance rate agreement to lock in an interest rate if the borrower believes interest rates could rise in the future. In other words, a borrower might want to set their cost of borrowing today by entering an FRA.

The cash difference between the FRA and the reference rate or variable interest rate is offset on the date of the value or settlement. For bonds, spot prices are estimated through the bootstraping method, which uses the prices of securities currently traded on the market, i.e. the cash curve or coupons.
