Fundamentals of Futures and Options Markets is your resource for a sound and easy-to-grasp introduction to financial mathematics. Author John Hull breaks down complex subject matter to provide the knowledge you'll need to understand and apply financial mathematics to business, economics and other related pursuits.

The 9th Edition includes up-to-date information to help you stay abreast of industry developments. Expanded coverage of new regulations concerning the clearing and trading of OTC derivatives appears throughout the text. Chapter 7 on swaps has been majorly reworked to improve presentation of the material and reflect the derivatives market's move to OIS discounting. And discussion of the impact of daily settlement when futures contracts are used for hedging has been expanded.
