The authors have made an earnest to present this book on Foreign Exchange to present all major subjects in international monetary theory, foreign exchange markets, international financial management and investment analysis in a lucid manner. The book is relevant to real world problems in the sense that it provides guidance on how to solve policy issues as well as practical management tasks. This in turn helps the reader to gain a basic understanding of the theory and refines the framework.
