This is a possible strategy for companies with a large number of small contracts in a large number of currencies FOREX-Management of exposure risks
    • 10. Hedging• Insuring against transaction risk to reduce or eliminate the effects of unexpected changes in exchange rates.• You can hedge only at market rates. The effects of expected changes in exchange rates are incorporated in these market rates. Hedging is insurance. The purpose of hedging is to reduce or eliminate risks, not to make profits.

    • 14. Translation Risk• Gains or losses from exchange rate changes that occur as a result of converting financial statements from one currency to another in order to consolidate them.• Every company having at least one subsidiary using a different functional currency bears translation risk. “MSDI has translation risk from having a subsidiary, MSDI Alcala de Henares, whose financial statements are kept in Spanish pesetas and not in U.S. dollars.” FOREX-Management of exposure risks

    • 18. Forward and Money Markets• Money markets can always be used to synthesize forward markets.• Money market rates are used to set forward market rates.• Money market transactions are likely to be more costly than forward market transactions, since three transactions having their own bid-ask spreads are required to duplicate one forward market transaction with one bid-ask spread.• Money market transactions appear on the balance sheet; forward market transactions do not.
