Forecast FX Exposure

Tempus helps businesses like yours traverse the volatile currency market—focusing solely on optimizing the management and swift delivery of your global payments in alignment with our award-winning FX forecasting. 

Currency volatility, also known as Foreign Exchange (FX) volatility, is the unpredictable movement of exchange rates in the global foreign exchange market. With over $5.3 trillion of USD being traded every day, this volatility can lead to large losses (or gains) in the foreign exchange market—and it is the principal cause of foreign currency risk.

The most obvious kinds of FX risks are transactional, when a company sends or receives money typically classified as accounts payable, accounts receivable or capital expenditures.  Whether a company uses international suppliers or services, has offices operational in other countries or is merging with an overseas entity—there is risk of exposure to currency fluctuations.

When you operate your business globally, successfully navigating the volatile FX market is critical to your profit margins.  Unless you’re allocating resources to round-the-clock monitoring of currency market swings along with the potential impacts of political, business, governmental, environmental, social forces or even just a late-night tweet—you may expose your bottom line to unnecessary FX risk. Using a combination of forecasting methods in tandem with a deep understanding of your business, Tempus helps forecast your FX exposure and better manage your global payments.

 

What is FX Forecasting?
Technical or Chartist Forecasting

One type of forecasting is called technical or chartist. This is the old school method referring back to economics class and theories requiring the use of historical data to identify patterns and cycles.

Economic or Fundamental Forecasting

The second type of forecasting is economic or fundamental and takes into account the relationship of the two currency countries and their effects of their individual monetary policies.

Market-Based Forecasting

The third type of forecasting, market-based, is focused more on the current situation of the currency markets and economic sentiment including currency flows and economic data such as employment, inflation, retail sales and manufacturing indexes.
