The goal of  simulation is to create a hands-on,competitive experience. During play, the participants learn the impact of differing currency types and fluctuating exchange rates on profits. Participants should gain an appreciation of the concept that differing currency types (pegged, basket and others) react very differently to changes
in the foreign exchange environment.

This further points out the need for careful study of a host country’s currency before doing business.

Finally, it is hoped that this simulation has provided the participant a useful experience
in price-competitive selling, and an appreciation of the added difficulties of dealing in foreign currency.

Financial modelling is extensively used in all sectors of today’s business environments.

In particular, it is used as a tool in the preparation of plans, budgets and many corporate projections. Simulation modelling is not widely used in this area, although it is popular and used in other areas such as manufacturing, health services and traffic management.

This paper addresses financial modelling and, more specifically, simulation modelling in the financial arena.

The main objective of the research was to provide a support for the foreign exchange dealer in predicting future movements in foreign currency rates. Following an analysis of trend factors and technical analysis the findings of the research resulted in the construction of a simulation model, which is used in an international bank.


Now to a basic question. How do we know what a foreign exchange rate is? How much is any currency worth in terms of other currencies?

The simple answer is that a currency is worth whatever people are willing to pay for it.

This is a case of supply and demand inter- acting in a market to establish a price for currency.

If there is little quantity demanded for the country’s cur-rency, or a great quantity available for foreigners to buy, the money will be worth less on the foreign exchange market.

If there is a high quantity demanded or only a small quantity supplied, then it will be worth more on  the foreign exchange market.  LINK
