Abstract

We consider a general semimartingale model of a currency market with transaction costs and give a description of the initial endowments which allow to hedge a contingent claim in various currencies by a self-financing portfolio. As an application we obtain a result on the structure of optimal strategies for the problem of maximizing expected utility from terminal wealth.
