Dimitris N. Chorafas - �Treasury Operations and the Foreign Exchange Challenge: A Guide to Risk Management Strategies for the New World Markets�

Dimitris N. Chorafas - �Treasury Operations and the Foreign Exchange Challenge: A Guide to Risk Management Strategies for the New World Markets� The methods, instruments, and technologies used to manage risk in the foreign exchange markets are more complex than ever before. Banks, corporations, and financial institutions today must adopt new roles in order to compete successfully in the explosively evolving foreign exchange markets. Focusing on the new global electronic markets, Treasury Operations and the Foreign Exchange Challenge is a complete, practical introduction to today's foreign exchange operations, providing the techniques and insights needed to pinpoint opportunities and control risks.

This book shows how trading systems, computer-based models, and other analytical tools can be used to examine financial opportunities and help develop sound investment and hedging decisions. Treasury Operations and the Foreign Exchange Challenge covers global trading activity in foreign exchanges and its effects on the newly revitalized area of corporate treasury operations. Specific topics include the new world of treasury functions; treasury duties in risk management; facing the challenge of global risk; the ways and means of transacting foreign exchange deals; swaps, hedging, and currency management; the rise and fall of currency values; and the importance and likely future of the ECU. Illustrated by numerous examples drawn from the experience of leading financial institutions in the U.S., Japan, and Europe, Treasury Operations and the Foreign Exchange Challenge shows the diverse, sometimes ingenious, and sometimes catastrophic ways these institutions are responding to market challenges, designing new financial products, and using the latest technologies. Treasury Operations and the Foreign Exchange Challenge is an invaluable reference for bankers, pension fund managers, insurance executives, corporate treasurers, and all other financial professionals in treasury, Forex, and securities- or any management decision-maker who wants to fully understand the changes of the 1980s and the challenges of today.

Cornel University Library ...

Cornell university library

Department of quantitative finance Quantitative Finance (the closest to what we are doing here). All the books, articles, documents ... are free for download (not even some kind of registration is required). This kind of information sharing is what the original idea of internet was and sites like these (non-warez like, thanks good for that - whichever good) still exist and are sharing no-nonsense information.

For the ones willing to learn, a wealth of information can be found there ...

...

And one more of that kind : it is a link to a guery on MIT open course ware seeking for "finance" (you can narrow it down or look for something completely else too) OpenCourseWare Search Results: finance

These are complete courses, and practically the only thing that you can not do at the MIT open course ware is to take exam. Almost all the rest is available

Building Your Wings on the Way Down

This article is not "pure forex" but since it is about trading and since it is talking in an everyday language it might be interesting to read it. It is coming from Willmot trading magazine (they are specialized in quantitative finance) and they usually know what are they talking about. Link to it is a direct link (the document is too big to post it here) Registration at Willmot site is free and "hastle free" (in case if you are asked for registration before downloading the document)
