THIS QUESTION IS PZK CO FROM KAPLAN KIT
With reference to PZK making foreign currency purchases, which of the following
statements concerning whether PZK Co should ‘lead’ or ‘lag’ in its management of
the anticipated receipt is true?
A The $ is expected to weaken against the €, so PZK should lead
B The $ is expected to weaken against the €, so PZK should lag
C The $ is expected to strengthen against the €, so PZK should lead
D The $ is expected to strengthen against the €, so PZK should lag
THE ANSWER IS C . SIR CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN ME THIS, I REALLY FIND IT CONFUSING SOLVING SUCH QUESTION WEAKINING STRENTHENING OF CURRENCYNovember 22, 2021 at 3:00 pm #641323
You have not said what currency is the home currency for PZK, and that obviously makes a big difference to the answer. (I do not have the Kaplan Kit but there was a past question question called PZK, although Kaplan must have added it because in the exam question they were receiving the foreign currency rather than paying foreign currency).November 22, 2021 at 4:03 pm #641331
home currency is dollar and yes expect to recieve 1200000euro in six month timeNovember 22, 2021 at 4:04 pm #641332
in the main scenario it was written they are going to recieve 1200000 euro but in this particular question they asked if they purchaseNovember 23, 2021 at 8:41 am #641360
If that is indeed what the question says then it would seem that they have made a mistake in the answer.
If the $ strengthens against the Euro and if they are paying Euros then the longer they delay payment the fewer $’s they will have to pay and they should therefore lag.November 23, 2021 at 9:31 am #641375ABDULLAHI312Participant

sir, apologies for interfering with this.
but, if the home currency is dollars and they are receiving euros, then expected strong dollar will mean low amount of dollars will be received for 120,000 euros than it would have been now. so, i think they should lead and land in the euros now.November 23, 2021 at 11:47 am #641386
thankyou sirr ! i was also thinking their is some mistakeNovember 23, 2021 at 3:17 pm #641395
Abdullah: But if you read what sadafwaheed has written, you will see that he says that for this part of the question it is written that they are paying euros for purchases (not that they are receiving euros). Also that is exactly what I explain in my latest reply.
