c. Using your answer from parta , what is Cachita's gross profit and net profit (including premium) if the spot rate at the end of 90 days is¥140.00 in dollars to yen
put option -option to sell the underline asset
Here, strike price = 126 premium = 0.00003 i.e 0.00003*126 =0.00378
selling price = 118 ,so if he sells this asset ,he would incur loss of (126-118)+0.00378 ,because MP<EP(exercise price)
call option =option to buy the underline asset.
strike price = 126 premium = 0.00046*126 =0.05796
market price =118
So he would prefer to exercise the call option because he is getting profit of (126-118)-0.05796 because MP<EP(exercise price)
