"FX derivatives and jump models"

After a quick overview of the needed probabilistic concepts, I present the building blocks of modern mathematical finance with some emphasis on the foreign-exchange (FX) market.
The anomalies recently experienced by the EURCHF (Euro - Swiss Franc) currency pair furnish the motivation for some simple extensions of the mainstream models used in the industry, namely models in which asset prices can exhibit discontinuities.
I then analyze the effect of model choice (including jump models) on some contracts which are very liquid in the FX world, namely one-touch options and variance swaps.
