British Pound

British Pound Hedger

A hedger in the British pound market is an individual who uses the futures market to offset price risk when intending to sell or buy the actual British pound. Hedging is possible because the British pound cash prices and British pound futures prices tend to move in the same direction. However, the difference between the cash price and the futures price may narrow or widen. The change in the difference between the cash price and the futures price is called basis risk. Because of the changing basis no hedge can be perfect.
