Hedging and liquidation under transaction costs in currency markets

  • Y.M. Kabanov


We consider a general semimartingale model of a currency market with transaction costs and give a description of the initial endowments which allow to hedge a contingent claim in various currencies by a self-financing portfolio. As an application we obtain a result on the structure of optimal strategies for the problem of maximizing expected utility from terminal wealth.

Key words: Currency market, contingent claim, transaction cost, hedging JEL classification: G13, G11 Mathematics Subject Classification (1991): 60G44
