...institutions can now undertake IRS and FRA as a product of their own balance sheet management and market making purposes. Initially, there was a lot of enthusiasm shown over swaps by corporates and financial institutions but now it seems to have waned. Not many deals have been reported for long. Market participants now realize that one can strike a couple of deals for the sake of publicity, but one cannot have a sustainable interest rate market based on a single benchmark that too when it is as short as an overnight call money market.  The issues of concern being the lack of a term market and domestic interest rates, particularly the overnight rate being hostage to the fortunes of the rupee in the Forex market. The swap market is expected to grow with growth in the money and forex markets. Objective The main idea was to know what is foreign exchange market and what are Derivatives and how corporate use these Derivatives to manage the risk that they would have faced if there were no derivatives.

...Comparing Two Magazines  For my compare and contrast essay, I have decided to compare two magazines in the financial business. The name of the first magazine is” The economist” and the second magazine is “Forbes”  The theme of the first magazine is to highlight, how and what type of businesses to start and make money without putting in much of the hard work. The very first page of the magazine shows an absolute image of the man and women dressed up with lots of money and a road of success. The magazine rapidity claims” Sure ways to make money”. It seems like editor is personally involved in guaranteeing the success of the business with highlighting text displaying “Make $40 Million with eco-friendly herbs and sprouts” or “Make 15 million in the first year with Dollar Varity stores”  As I am turning and reading pages more and more, I realize that this magazine is not meant to show issues, techniques, pros and cons of starting up a business but it is more like infomercials showing the top returns one can reap from his investments. The magazine forces me to realize that I am missing an essential experience in my life by not starting up the business. The magazine displays beautiful color and picture schemes. The magazine also highlights few of the success stories of the entrepreneurs. Overall this magazine makes business as a seamless transition of normal day today activity to a profit generating machine, but to some extent it also highlights few......

...see the reversal in March 2003, Figure 3). If the visual element is not sufficient, simple indicators can be used to arrive at similar conclusions. The main advantage of this simple method is a better visual perspective of the current status and strength of the trend or consolidation, and a possible anticipation of the next bar's strength. As with any other charting method, the heikin-ashi is not 100% reliable and therefore should be combined with other technical indicators. Your trading, of course, should also include risk- and capital-control strategies. Dan Valcu is a Swedish private trader, computer consultant, and a technical analysis instructor.

Magazine Controversy

...Reality Magazine covers have always been known to push the limit. It’s a fantastic marketing ploy to grab the attention of consumers. Think about it, you are walking down an aisle or standing in line at the market to check out, what is going to stand out more to you and easily grab your attention? Is it going to be a magazine cover with a modestly dressed man or women? Or perhaps a magazine cover with a provocative Miley Cyrus or a cover with an extremely, well known very hated face for example? The more absurd or obscene the image the faster and more likely it is going to grab our attention. The Rolling Stone magazine cover did just that when their August 1, 2013 issue was released headlining the Boston bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. There are numerous reasons why the majority of Americans were enraged by the cover choice the Rolling Stone’s made, but I’m not one of them. To be in the entertainment industry and land the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine is an honor. “It goes without saying that if you are featured under those two journalistically iconic words, than you have made it” (International Business, Times. “Rolling Stone Cover Sparks.”). The band Dr. Hooks even wrote a song about wanting to be on the cover of the Rolling Stone; “But the thrill we’ve never known, is the thrill that’ll getcha when you get your picture, on the cover of the Rollin’ Stone” (Silverstein). However, the Rolling Stone magazine isn’t just for stars in the entertainment industry. The......

...targeting and central bank independence - are being reviewed. Even the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank have revised their views and conceded that capital controls may be necessary at times. However, for the ideologically blinkered in India, capital account controls in any form are synonymous with "licence and permit raj". Given the size of India's outstanding stock of internal public debt and projected budget deficits, there are limitations to which the government/public sector can access funds domestically. This would suggest that India should welcome all forms of capital inflows to plug its funding gaps. However, if foreign capital flows into India are more than its current account deficit, the excess gets added to its forex (FX) reserves, which are warehoused in low interest rate bearing government securities of triple A developed countries. The governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) mentioned at a conference in Zurich on May 11, 2010 that "problems arise when the (capital) flows are largely in excess of the economy's absorptive capacity". This article examines available options and corresponding logic to increase or restrict capital inflows against the irony of India having to lend its FX reserves to governments of countries with much higher per capita income. First, a few numbers. As of December 31, 2009, India's FX reserves stood at $283.5 billion. On the same date, total external debt amounted to $251.4 billion, of which long-term debt......

Sharing Is Caring Is Sharing

...OCTOBER 30, 2013 Sharing Is Caring Is Sharing BY BETSY MORAIS SHARETWEET War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. —George Orwell, “1984” Secrets are lies. Sharing is Caring. Privacy is theft. —Dave Eggers, “The Circle” The construction begs for comparison, and yet “The Circle” is no “1984.” In the future, according to Dave Eggers, one mega social-network corporation, the namesake of his new novel, has become the technological architect of daily life—arranging conversations, restocking pantries, making payments, and ranking human beings. The company’s leaders wear zip-up hoodies, of course, and enjoy surfing, yet they are known with reverent remove as the Three Wise Men. It’s serious business—so serious that even the parties are work, since attendance is monitored by your boss—and Eggers emulates this sobriety in his writing, which plods across the corporate campus resentfully. New hire Mae Holland, the novel’s protagonist, bounds forth into the communal ethos of her overlords, embracing her first assignment, answering e-mails that provide a “human experience” to small advertisers. Eggers seems bored by the task—Oh, must we spend another day at the Customer Experience desk, minutiae un-inspected, e-mails unread? He doesn’t want to be in the grind, or even playfully tease it. Disclosure is the story of “The Circle,” yet Eggers hardly tells enough. But even without the searing wit of “1984,” the book is capable of landing on point—when it’s at its...

... Methods of hedging can be classified as a. Internal methods b. External methods 1. Internal methods: Internal methods include: i. Invoicing: In invoicing the corporate shifts the entire exchange risk to the other party by insisting that all its imports and exports be invoiced in its home currency. ii. Netting/matching of cash flows: In this method of hedging if a firm has receivables and payables corresponding to the same periods then even if no other action is taken it will be able to match these exposures and make payments out of the payments received, since it will not have to buy or sell currencies in respect of these matched receipts and payments, there is no forex exposure risk involved. This is also called as ‘natural hedging’. iii. Leading and Lagging: The expression leading mean s paying before the due date and lagging means postponing the receipt of funds beyond the date on which they are due. The general rule is to lead i.e. advance payables and lag i.e. postpone receivables in strong currencies and conversely lead receivables and lag payables in weak currencies. 2. External methods: External method includes: i. Forward contract: Forward contract is a firm and binding contract entered into by the bank and its customer for the purchase of specified amount of foreign currency at an agreed rate of exchange for delivery and payment at a future......

...value of the goods was expressed in terms of other goods. This type of trade was called as the Barter System. The limitations of this system of trade paved the path for the introduction of ‘Money’and Money gave birth to the need to exchange different currency:- Foreign Currency trading. The origin of Foreign Exchange (Forex) trading traces its history to centuries ago. The Babylonians are credited with the first use of paper notes and receipts. However, during this phase of history Speculation hardly ever happened. During the middle ages, the introduction of a paper form of governmental I.O.U. gained acceptance. This type of I.O.U. was introduced more successfully through force than through persuasion.These paper bills represented transferable third-party payments of funds, making foreign currency exchange trading much easier for merchants and traders and causing these regional economies to flourish. These I.O.U’s have now become the basis of today's modern currencies. From its infantile stages during the Middle Ages to First World war, the forex markets were relatively stable and without much speculative activity. During this phase, most Central banks supported their currencies with convertibility to gold. This standard had a major weakness called the ‘boom-bust’ pattern. As an economy strengthened (Boom), it would import a great deal from out of the country until it ran down its gold reserves required to support its money; as a result, the money supply would diminish,......
