  1. Hi,

    a question about some real application of futures. Suppose there is a company with a canadian office. All product sales of the company are in the US paid and quoted in US dollars.

    However the office expences in Canada run to about 250K monthly. In the wake of CAD traded at 92c US in November 2007 the company wants not to be affected by sudden changes in USD/CAD.

    What would be the best strategy for it to hedge against CAD/USD movements?

  2. To get a better understanding you may want to check out the CME -

    They have a number of online educational seminars on hedging. I have taken a few of the technicla analysis and there are good.
  3. Thank you! They've got a good section on hedging on their site.
