Abstract

The volatility of capital markets is often blamed on the activities of institutional investors, or an excessive amount of financial instruments. It must be remembered that there are different institutional investors. Some of them play a very useful role without having a negative impact on the stability of the capital market. The same is true various instruments, many of them play a useful role. Many companies have long used derivatives to hedge against business risks, using them to manage fluctuations in exchange rates, interest rates, commodity prices, etc.
