Market Risk Assessment

What is risk assessment?

Risk assessment in foreign currency trading is used to identify potential risk factors that could generate losses. It is used to analyze and evaluate risks associated with the foreign exchange market and to determine the best ways to control and minimize the risks.

Measuring and managing foreign exchange risk is crucial in order to reduce the negative effects of a volatile market on profit margins and asset value.

Risk assessment should be an ongoing process to be re-evaluated and adapted to the foreign currency market’s realities.

Foreign exchange, also known as forex or FX is driven by supply and demand. As such, it fluctuates like any other market.

When dealing in foreign currency exchange, as with any type of market trading, there are elements of risk that might affect the trade.

There are 4 main negative impacts of foreign currency trade which are part of any sensible market risk assessment plan.


Liquidity risk

this occurs when an individual or a business has to buy above or sell below market value, thus suffering a loss.

Interest rate risk

this relates to the fluctuation of interest rates which affects foreign exchange prices.

Leverage risk

commonly believed to be high risk because the potential loss is higher than the trading capital.
