CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1  BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

       In recent decades, international trade in goods and financial services has become increasingly important. To facilitate such trade, many banking institution have also become international.

       Foreign exchange market (currency market) is a form of exchange for the global decentralized trading of international currencies. Financial centres around the world function as auchors of trading between a wide range of different types of buyers and sellers around the clock.

The foreign exchange market determines the relative valve of different currencies.

       The foreign exchange market assist international trade and investment by enabling currency conversion for example, it permits a business in Nigeria import goods from European union member states especially Eurozone members and pay Euros. Ever through its income is in Nigeria. It also support direct speculation in the valve of currencies and the carry tradE, speculation basat on the interest rate differential between two currencies.

       In a typical foreign exchange transaction a party purchases some quantity of one currency by paying some quantity of another currency. The modern foreign exchange market began forming during the 1970s after three decades of government restrict on foreign exchange transaction (the Bretton wood system of monetary management established the riles for commercial and financial relations among the world’s major industries states after world war II) when countries gradually switched to floating exchange rate from previous exchange rate regime which remained fixed as per the Bretton wood system.

       The foreign exchange market is unique because of the following characteristics.

1.  Its huges trading volume representing the largest asset class in the world leading to high liquidity.

2.  Its geographical dispersion

3.  The variety of factors that affect exchange rates

4.  Its continuous operation  hours a day except weekend i.e trading from 20:15 GMT on Sunday until 22:00 GMT Friday.

5.  The law margins of relative profile compared with markets of fixed income.

6.  The use of leverage to enhance profit and loss margins and with respect to account size.

As such it has been referred to as the market closest to the ideal of perfect competition not withstanding currency intervention by central banks. According to the bank for international settlement as of April 2010, average daily turnover in global foreign exchange market is estimated at $3.98 trillion a growth of approximately 20% over the %3.21 trillion daily volume as of April 2007. Some firms specializing on foreign exchange market had put the average daily turnover in excess of US $4 trillion.      

       Banks have expanded internationally by establishing foreign subsidiaries and branches or by taking over established foreign banks. The internationalization of the banking section has been spurred by the lateralization of financial market worldwide. Developed and developing countries alike now increasingly allow banks to be foreign owned and allow foreign entry on a nation treatment basis.

       Financial liberalization of this kind of proceeds, among other reasons on the premise that the gains from foreign entry to the democratic banking system out weight any losses several authors have addressed the potential benefits of foreign bank entry for the domestic economy in terms of better resource allocation and higher efficiency Levine (1996) specifically mention that foreign bank may:

i.            Improve the quality and availability of financial services in the domestic financial market by increasing bank competition by enabling the greater application or more modern banking skills and technology.

ii.           Serve to stimulate the development of the underlying bank supervisory and legal framework.

iii.         Enhance a country’s access to international capital. There may also be cost to opening financial market to foreign competition stightz (1993) for instance discusses the potential costs to domestic banks local entrepreneurs and the government resulting from foreign bank entry.    

Domestic banks may incur costs they have to compete with larger international bank with better reputation local entrepreneurs may receive less chess to financial service since foreign generally concentrate on multinational firms and government may find their control of the economy diminished since foreign banks tend to be less sensitive to their wishes.

As yet little evidence exist of the effects of an internationalization of the banking sector other than several case studies  of foreign bank entry MC Fadden (1994) reviews foreign bank entry in Australia and finds that this has led to improved domestic bank entry operations. Bhattacharaya (1993) reports on specific cases in Pakistan, Turkey, and korea where foreign banks facilitated access to foreign capital for domestic project pigott (19986) describe the policies that have made increased foreign bank activity possible in nine pacific Basin countries and provides some aggregate statistics on the size and scope of foreign banking activities in these markets.
