For the purpose of studying the differences between futures and forward contracts in the Brazilian currency market, this dissertation focus on the futures contracts traded at BM&FBOVESPA where, for maturities without liquidity, the mark to market is done using the theoretical price for forward contracts. A Monte Carlo simulation using a hedged portfolio comprising currency futures, DI futures and DDI futures clearly shows that this methodology should at least be reviewed.
