If I interpret your question below correctly: I don't understand why the cash flow for the EUR spot long position is being calculated the way it is. It makes no sense to me. Seeing as it is a spot rate why is it's cash flow not simply spot * 100 MM EUR notional ? You want to know why Jorion takes 100MM EUR * spot * 1/(1+eur_rate) instead of 100MM ...

EBS and Reuters are major FX spot price discovery sources, but CME futures can be used as a spot price discovery source as well, as well as smaller venues and exchanges. They are all liquidity pools. The typical situation depends on the traders and the machines they use (and perhaps geographic location) but there is basically no difference between spot and ...
