Some observations
Some observations

  • You invest only 10% of the notional position.

  • Your leverage ratio is 1 to 10.

  • Inital Margin values are determined on the basis of daily (extreme volatility) estimates and are subject to change.

  • ISE30 and S&P500 should not have the same leverage ratio (in S&P it is 4%: i.e. Leverage ratio is 25!)

  • You might even have some exotic futures contract so that it will be only 2% (i.e. Leverage ratio is 50!!)

How do we close a futures position
How do we close a futures position

  • More than 70% of the futures contracts are not exercised at the maturity.

  • To take advantage of a market move you may sell your futures contract in the VOB.

  • The difference between the price you paid and the price in the second hand market for the same product will be your profit (or loss).

  • All you need to do enter a reverse position that you own in the futures market.

  • In the previous example: if you take a short position of FX futures with 3 months maturity you will take your profit or loss.

  • For instance in the FX futures example if close in June 17 with the futures price of 1.4 you will be making 20,000 TL loss.

  • Of course you don’t know who will buy it but your counterparty will have another counterpf you close your position in You invest only 10% of the notional position.

  • Your leverage ratio is 1 to 10.

Hedging with futures and forward products
Hedging with Futures and Forward Products

  • Long position in spot can be hedged with short position in futures or forward.

  • Short position in spot can be hedged with long position in futures or forwards.

  • Provided that spot product risk, maturity and product directly matches to futures product then this can create a perfect hedge.

    • Example:

      • Short in spot: hedge with long futures:

        • Dollar/TL debt (short position) in six months and 6 month-futures contract(long). Exporters.

      • Long in spot: hedge with short with futures:importers.

Hedging in companies
Hedging in Companies

  • Companies want to eliminate financial risks other than their main functions(interest rate, currency, or other commodities petrol etc.)

  • Companies’ purpose is to eliminate the volatility of their profits because of the other risky determinents.

  • SEC works on to inform stockholders by rewealing the risks.

  • In the risk management purposes:What other companies doing and the cost of the hedging is the main two problems.

  • For example; hedging continously the cost of petrol worths 147US$ may not be easy process.

  • However, in terms of legislation and transparency there may be expected important changes.

Hedging in practice
Hedging in practice?

  • What is Perfect Hedge?

  • If a hedge product which totally eliminates the risk of the main product, then there would not be a perfect hedge.

    • A written futures product on the same holding term, same risk factor, same currency.

    • Example: If there does not exist a futures instrument on the jet fuel, or on the same currency, or the maturtiy of the instrument which creates risk is shorter

  • What can be done under these circumstances?

  • If the airlines have a jet fuel risk and there exists a futures on the crude oil, then cross hedging might be carried out.

  • If the maturity of the risky product is longer than the maturity of the protective futures product, then you may conduct a rolling hedge.

  • If hedge costs much, then the half can be hedged. (Partial Hedge).
