Using the information below, what will be the spot rate of the Singapore dollar (USD/SGD) in three years based on the international fisher effect (=UIRP)? KEEP AT LEAST TWO DECIMALS

Spot Exchange rate of the Singapore dollar (USD/SGD) =0.71

Three-year annualized IR in the U.S. ( i.e., annual rate expected each year over the following three years), in% = 3.6

Three-year annualized interest rate in Singapore (%) =0.62

 International Fisher Effect Remarks When F1= Forward Rate Foreign Currency per USD To be derived S0= Spot Rate Foreign Currency per USD =1/0.71=1.408 SGD/USD rFC = Interest rate Foreign Currency 0.62% rUS = Interest Rate USD 3.60% t=Time period 3 yrs Interest Rate Parity =IPR formula : F1/S0= (1+rFC)/(1+rUS) or F1=S0[1+(rFC-rUS)] so , F1=1.408*[1+(0.62%-3.6%)] F1=1.366 SGD/USD =1/1.366 USD /SGD=0.732 USD/SGD So Spot Rate in 3 years would be 0.732 USD/SGD
