Hello Mr Moffat

Just wanted to mention that this lecture is a repetition of part d of foreign exchange risk management.

• says

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.

• says

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.

2. says

Dear sir,
as per the new paper structure it is possible to get mcq questions (numerical) on futures, options and swaps?

• says

No.

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).

I have enjoyed every other chapter in the study text and your lectures are fantastic Mr Moffat! But this chapter is killing me! I keep yawning! 😀 😀
I need matchsticks in my eyes! lol

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

• says

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)

5. says

why we multiplying here instead of divide(800,000*1.5631)…can anybody help me plz

• says

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.
