We study utility-based hedging and indifference pricing in a basis risk model where we wish to hedge a claim on a non-traded asset by trading a correlated traded asset. We examine the sensitivities of such trading strategies to relevant model parameters and we give first-order approximation formulae of the partial derivatives of the indifference price and hedging strategy with respect to these parameters. We also study the effect of the drift parameter mis-estimation on the performance of the optimal strategy.
