    Stressing the interrelatedness and complexity of the global economy, International Financial Markets: An Overview helps students understand the international financial environment and its various implications. Over the course of seven chapters, students become familiar with foundational concepts in international finance.

    The first chapter introduces the foreign exchange market and describes its structure, conduct, and performance. In the second chapter, students examine major derivative products and markets. Chapter Three explains the interrelationships among the different markets, covering topics including market efficiency, purchasing-power parity, forward-rate expectations, and more. Chapter Four discusses the international monetary system, while Chapter Five expands on the topic by presenting variables that influence exchange rates. Dedicated chapters examine exchange rate forecasting, exchange risk and exposure, and international bond and equity markets.

    The second edition features significant updates and new material in every chapter to align with current events, trends, and research in the field.

    Rooted in a strong belief that all business students need to understand international finance, International Financial Markets can be used in courses in finance, accounting, and economics.
