Typically, warrants are used to manage risk if you have exposure to a certain currency and wish to hedge against potential losses. The other common use of currency warrants is to speculate on the movement of exchange rates and earn a profit if your view is correct. The leverage in currency warrants allows users to gain more exposure to exchange rate movements.
