Just to add a little bit to the explanations. There's a difference between the price of a "forward" and the future price of an item.
Let's say that a nice guitar that you like costs \$500 today if we do the deal now and settle cash now. So what will the guitar be worth in the future? Who knows?
But, say that you want to buy the guitar from me but settle in a month from now. So we agree on a price now - but we only exchange cash flows in a month. That's what people call a "forward". It just means the settlement is later.
In this case maybe having a guitar for another month is really valuable as I'll get a lot of enjoyment out of it. So the market price for the forward will be lower than \$500.
But, what if instead people really want money now. Maybe interest rates are high and they can invest that cash. So if you want to get my guitar in a month and pay me later then the market price for the forward would be higher than \$500.
Does that make sense? The forward price has nothing to do with the future price of the underlying asset. A forward is just saying I'll pay you for it (and take possession of it) later.
