This text presents a study of various models based on jump processes in the context of foreign exchange (FX) rates modeling. Quality of FX rate log-returns fit is assessed for models such as Merton and Kou jump-diffusions, normal inverse Gaussian, variance gamma, and Meixner. The study is illustrated by simulation results that are provided for each of the models considered. Jump models are contrasted to the well-known (continuous) Brownian motion model.
