Arbitrage, Hedging, and Speculation : The Foreign Exchange Market, Hardback Book

Arbitrage, Hedging, and Speculation : The Foreign Exchange Market Hardback


Explains arbitrage, hedging, and speculation from the standpoint of a participant in the foreign exchange market-whether an individual trader or an institutional trader-who possesses analytical skill, economically sound judgment, and who has access to market data.

In the foreign exchange market, arbitrage involves the simultaneous purchase and sale of a currency in different markets; the profit comes from the difference in the buying and selling prices.

Hedging and speculation are opposing strategies for dealing with risk; hedging is a cover, and speculation is an assumption of risk.

Authors also discuss futures, swaps, forward contracts, and other strategies.

For financial scholars, students, analysts, and currency traders.
