cross-currency transaction


A currency trade consisting of the purchase of one type of currency and the sale of another through foreign exchange conversions. For example, Euros are used to purchase Hong Kong dollars which are then used to purchase Swiss Francs in a near instantaneous transaction. Such transactions are executed to capitalize on divergent currency rate movements.
