Question

Suppose that the one-year interest rate is 2.45 percent in the United States; the spot exchange rate is $1.1527/€; and the one-year forward exchange rate is $1.1231/€. What must one-year interest rate be in the euro zone to avoid arbitrage?

Answer #1

_______________________________

_______________________________

Spot Rate : - 1 Euro = $1.1527

Forward Rate : - 1 Euro = $ 1.1231

**Forward Rate =
**

**1.1231 =
**

**(1 + Europe Interest Rate) = 1.1527 * 1.0245 /
1.1231**

**(1 + Europe Interest Rate) = 1.05150133558**

**Europe Interest Rate = 1.05150133558 - 1**

**Europe Interest Rate** = 5.15%
