Japanese Yen Hedger
A hedger in the yen
market is an individual who uses the futures market to offset price risk when intending to sell or buy the actual yen. Hedging
is possible because the yen cash prices and yen 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.
