Currency option markets and exchange rates: a case study of the U.S. dollar in March 1995

Abstract: Some market observers attribute the dollar's recent drop against the mark and yen to a type of currency option known as the knockout option. Although knockouts did contribute modestly to the dollar's fall, their full impact was felt to a much greater extent in the option markets.
