We prove convex ordering results for random vectors admitting a predictable
representation in terms of a Brownian motion and a non-necessarily independent
jump component. Our method uses forward-backward stochastic calculus and
extends the results proved in  in the one-dimensional case. We also study a
geometric interpretation of convex ordering for discrete measures in connection
with the conditions set on the jump heights and intensities of the considered
Keywords: Convex ordering, forward-backward stochastic calculus, deviation inequalities,
Brownian motion, jump processes.
