Foreign currency exchange risks are an important factor for anyone trading in international currencies. Importers and exporters can be greatly affected by fluctuations in foreign currency from one day to the next.

What is foreign exchange risk?

Businesses without commercial contracts expressed in domestic currency (or fixed by an agreed rate of exchange) are fully exposed to exchange risk. Exchange risk may arise because of exchange rate movements in the period from the original commercial contract to the time of settlement of the domestic equivalent of the foreign currency amount.
