The corresponding forward exchange rate is ?$_______/pound£. ?(Round to four decimal? places.) Using the? Black-Scholes formula d1 is _________ while Upper N1 is ___________. ?(Round to four decimal? places.) Using the? Black-Scholes formula d 2d2 is ________, while Upper N 2N2 is ________. ?(Round to four decimal? places.) The price of the call is ?$_________/pound£. ?(Round to four decimal? places.)

Answer #1

Formula to calculate forward rate is
S_{0}e^{(r-q)t}

= 1.8 * e^{(5.25% -
4%)0.5}

= 1.8113

The formula to calculate D1 is :

d1= {ln(1.80/1.80) + 0.5 (0.0525 -
0.04) + 0.1^{2}/2} / {0.1 * sqrt(0.5)}

d1 = 0.12374369

Hence the N(d1) = 0.5478

d2 = d1 - sqrt(t) * volatility.

d2 = 0.123 - sqrt(0.5) * 0.1

d2 = 0.05228932

Hence the N(d2) = 0.5200

To calculate the Call price, the formula used is :

C = (1.80 * e^{(-5.25% * 0.5)}
* 0.5478) - (1.80 * e^{(-4.00% * 0.5)} * 0.5200)

C = 0.9605 - 0.9175

C = 0.043

Suppose the current exchange rate is $ 1.83 divided by pound,
the interest rate in the United States is 5.45 %, the interest
rate in the United Kingdom is 3.77 %, and the volatility of the
$/£ exchange rate is 10.6 %. Use the Black-Scholes formula to
determine the price of a six-month European call option on the
British pound with a strike price of $ 1.83 divided by pound.

Suppose the exchange rate is $1.54/£, the British
pound-denominated continuously compounded interest rate is 2%, the
U.S. dollar-denominated continuously compounded interest rate is

British pound is $0.1614. What is the value of a 6-month
$1.60-strike European put on the British pound? Answers: a. $0.2024
b. $0.1972(Correct answer) c. $0.1797 d.
$0.2435 e. $0.2214. Please show all your work, thank you.

The current dollar-pound exchange rate is $1.50 to
£1.00. Suppose the annual interest rate of a U.S.
bond is 5% while the annual interest rate of a British bond is 7%.
You have $1,500 and want to purchase a £1,000
British bond now. How much U.S. dollars would you receive after a
year, assuming the exchange rate remains at $1.50 to
£1.00.
