capital markets hedges

Hedging done with instruments traded in the capital markets, including but not limited to swaps, options, and futures. (These hedge instruments are derivatives.) The term "capital markets" is slightly broader than " exchange traded" since some instruments, such as interest rate swaps, are bought and sold outside of the exchanges in over the counter ( OTC) markets that are still capital markets.
