Dear Sir, i have a question that if we convert the Dollar to Pounds now , we need 1,250,480 Dollars. and if we convert the Dollars to Pound at 10th of August we also need the same amount. Why dont we do it today? save the Pounds and pay it at later date. Is not it easy.

We could, but then why save the pounds to a later date – why not pay the supplier immediately?! However most businesses give credit to customers and therefore also take credit from suppliers – if we allow customers (say) a month to pay us, then where will the money come from to convert now? (And, of course, when it is the other way round and we are receiving money in a foreign currency then we will have no choice but to wait (unless we insist on being paid immediately, in which case the customer is likely to buy from someone else who does give credit).

I got £/$ 0.6398-0.6441
am I correct?
February 12, 2016 at 2:32 pm
Well you can see for yourself that you are correct, because you get the same answer!! (The small difference is rounding and therefore irrelevant).
I don’t really know why you want to add in an extra step, but it doesn’t matter how you do it in the exam.

The only reason for me to ask about this is i ma not sure about the answer that I got (the small difference).
Sorry to reply you late as I cannot receive the system notification about your reply.
Thanks a lot!
Have a great day!

Hello Mr Moffat
Just wanted to mention that this lecture is a repetition of part d of foreign exchange risk management.
March 22, 2015 at 7:33 pm
No it is not. It must be a problem at your end.
Go to the support page (the link is above) and you might find a solution there.

would this form of questions come in exam

I make it very clear in the lecture and in the course notes that you cannot be asked calculations on futures and that my little example is simply to explain the principle.
However, I also make it very clear that you can be asked to explain how futures work – that is why I go through the basic example.
November 6, 2014 at 2:12 pm
as per the new paper structure it is possible to get mcq questions (numerical) on futures, options and swaps?
November 6, 2014 at 4:36 pm
Although the structure has changed, the syllabus has not.
Numerical questions can not be asked on futures and options (and nor on swaps, which strictly is not in the syllabus at all).

hi everyone. i just finished this part of the lesson, and i did not understand why the chosen exchange rate was 1.5831 for spot rate instead of 1.5726, as this goes with selling dollars and the study case was referring to buying dollars for paying thank you
December 4, 2013 at 1:32 pm
I assume that you are referring to example 8, in which case nobody is buying dollars.
In this example, R is in the US and is buying £’s (and therefore selling $’s)
March 16, 2013 at 1:41 pm
why we multiplying here instead of divide(800,000*1.5631)…can anybody help me plz
March 17, 2013 at 9:28 am
The lecture explains at the very beginning.
If 1 GBP = 1.5631 $’s, then 800,000 GBP must be equal to 800,000 x 1.5631 $’s.
