Managing Foreign Exchange Exposure: A practical guide for efficient currency risk management
Date: Thursday, April 4, 2013
Time: 1pm ET | 10am PT
This webcast will provide participants with an overview of best practices for analyzing the currency market—starting with macro-economic indicators, central bank policy actions and signals produced by the FX markets. In addition, we will explore techniques to analyze and determine a currency’s fair value.
Techniques covered will include those focused on long-term valuation (purchasing power parity, real effective exchange rates and trade-weighted indices) as well approaches employed over shorter time horizons (forward and options and futures market positioning). Many of these techniques are, in fact, designed to compare and contrast traditional macro-economic forecasts with signals produced by the currency markets themselves.
