Hedging Foreign Exchange
Converting Risk to ProfitBook - 1987
The first comprehensive compilation of hedging analysis--at a time when hedging is becoming a very important and active field. Offers material not easily available to the vast majority of hedgers. Foreign currencies have become volatile, and it is essential for all companies doing business in more than one currency to protect themselves. The authors cover the basics of exposure detection and management, including accounting considerations, at a level understandable to practitioners. They then develop the concept of technical hedging, both theoretically and practically. Of the three major types of hedge, two are shown to offer potential for profit in addition to their protection as hedges. Explained for the first time is the timing of foreign exchange hedges using technical modeling. Includes hedging case studies and a corporate hedging survey. Its refutation of the random walk and econometric models may irritate classical economists.
