Solutions

16. Solution: use Equation (5-4) [(.32 - .30)/.30] x (360/180) = 13.3% 17. Solution: use Equation (5-4) [(.30 - .32)/.32] x (360/180) = -12.5% 18. Solution: cross rate .28/.86 = .3256

19. Solution: cross rate DM.31/FF: FF1/DM.31 = FF3.23/DM FF3.23/$.35 = FF9.228/$

20. Solution: use Equation (5-1) [(.0045 - .0035)/.0035 = 29% 21. Solution: use Equation (5-8) [(.3864 - S)/S) x (360/90)] = .10 - .04 S = .3807 22. Solution: use Equation (5-6). Remember that Cr$3342.63 = $0.0002991. new exchange rate = $0.0002991[(1 + .05)/(1 + .90)] = $.0001652/Cr$; or Cr$1/$.0001653 = Cr$6053.27/$

23. Solution: Use Equation (5-7): nominal rate = real rate + inflation rate. nominal rate = 5% + 4% = 9% Solution: invest in the U.S.: $10,000 x 1.01 = $10,100 invest in the U.K. and cover in the forward market. buy pounds at the present spot rate: $10,000/1.8 = £5,555 invest in the U. K: £5,555 x 1.015 = £5,638 sell pounds forward: £5,638 x 1.78 = $10,036 The investor would earn $64 more by investing in the United States instead of the United Kingdom. 25. Solution: use Equation (5-8) and solve for the forward rate: [(F - 1.800)/1.800 x (360/90)] = 0.04 - 0.06 F = £1.809 26. Solution: use Equation (5-8) and solve for the U.K. interest rate. [(1.780 - 1.800)/1.800 x (360/90)] = 0.04 – if if = 0.084 27. Solution: Use Equation (5-1). % Change = (0.68 - 0.64)/0.64 = 0.0625 or 6.25% 28. Solution: Converting the above example into indirect quotations, the Swiss franc changes from 1.5625 francs to 1.4706 francs. Use Equation (5-2) to solve this problem.% Change = (1.5625 - 1.4706)/1.4706 = 6.25% 29. Solution: Use Equation (5-3). Spread = (0.68 - 0.64)/0.64 = 0.0625 or 6.25%

Solutions

16. $value = $0.50 x DM10,000,000 = $5,000,000

17. Investment =£62,500 x $1.65 x 0.02 = $2,062.50 Profit = £62,500 ($1.67 - $1.65) = 1,250 Rate of return = (1,250/2,062.50) x (12/6) = 121% 18. Potential profit = $1.65 - $1.62 = $0.03

19. Potential loss = $1.62 - $1.65 = -$0.03

20. Buy call options on March 19 -$0.04 Exercises the option on September 19 -$0.80 Sell the pounds on September 19 +$0.92 Net profit as of September 19 +$0.08 Net profit for three contracts = Can$150,000 x $0.08= $12,000 21. Total loss = Can$150,000 x $0.04 = $6,000

22. Intrinsic value = $0.16 - $0.15 = $0.01

23. Breakeven point = $1.75 + $0.07 = $1.82

24. Total receipts = FF10,000,000 x $0.20 = $2,000,000 total premium = FF10,000,000 x $0.05 =$ 500,000 net receipts = $1,500,000

25. Breakeven point = $0.70 - $0.05 = $0.65
