it’s an adjustment to forward price of underlying if payoff’s currency is diferent from underlying’s currency


if payoff currency is EUREUR and underlying is in USD (for example DowJones index)
then we’ll need to adjust dividend yield of Dow jones by this quanto adjustment formula:

S= DJ index (USD)
$$ q=q-\rho \sigma_{FX} \sigma_{S}$$
$$\rho$$ is a correlation between EURUSD and and Dow Jones
