Cashflow hedges

In US accounting terminology, a hedge of a forecasted asset and liability acquisition for which the gain or loss on the hedging instrument will remain in equity when the asset or liability is acquired. That gain or loss will subsequently be included in net profit or loss in the same period as the asset or liability affects net profit or loss.
