Effective Hedging of Mortgage Interest Rate Risk

Other Titles
Abstract

Unfortunately, the hedging effectiveness of the GNMA futures market has been diminished by a lack of understanding of the selection of proper hedge ratios. This paper presents a derivation of the optimal hedge ratio for hedging interest rate risk with a GNMA futures contract. The hedge ratio is then applied to different hedging situations and the results of the traditional and newly derived hedging strategies are examined.
