Currency Derivative Research

Currency Derivative Research is slightly more complicated as there are multifarious factors that go into the value of a currency. For example, the dollar/INR pair would not only be impacted by the economies of the US and India but also by how the dollar moves versus the other currencies like Pound, Euro and the Yen. In addition, there are a plethora of factors like GDP data, labour data, fund flows and currency speculation; all of which impact the value of the currency pair in a variety of ways. More often than not the equity indices are also related to the currency movements. At any point of time there are positive and negative pulls on any currency and it is the net effect that determines the movement of the currency...…

Understanding the key pairs in currency futures…

In the Indian currency futures market, four pairs are quite common and popularly traded viz. Dollar/INR, Euro/INR, Pound/INR and Yen/INR. While the Dollar/INR continues to be the most popular pair for apparent reasons, the volumes in the other pairs are also picking up. Currency derivatives research at LKP, therefore, focuses on these pairs extensively. The report covers the performance of these pairs, the returns, the volumes and the shifts in open interest (OI). LKP Currency derivatives research also encapsulates all this data into a singular view on the pair to enable you to decide which direction you want to trade these pairs.
