Question

Assume the following information:

Exchange rate of Singapore dollar in USD = 0.32 USD/SGD

Exchange rate of pound in USD = 1.45 USD/GBP

Exchange rate of pound in Singapore dollars = 4.88 SGD/GBP

If you have 1 million USD to conduct one cycle of triangular
arbitrage, what will be your profit?

Answer #1

Step 1 | |||

Taking $1000000 and conevrt it to GBP | |||

USD | GBP | ||

1000000 | 689655.17 | [1 gbp = 1.45 usd] | |

Step 2 | |||

689655.17 GBP is converted to SGD Dollar | |||

GBP | SGD | ||

1 | 4.88 | ||

689655.17 | 3365517.241 | [1 gbp = 4.88 sgd] | |

step 3 | |||

Coverting SGD amount back to USD | |||

SGD | USD | ||

1 | 0.32 | ||

3365517.241 | 10,76,965.52 | ||

Now Initially we invested 1,000,000 | |||

Now, after 2 conversion, we have USD of 1076965.52 | |||

Hence Profit | 76965.51724 | (in USD) | |

(1076965.52 - 1000000) |

Assume the following information:
Exchange rate of Singapore dollar in USD = 0.32 USD/SGD
Exchange rate of pound in USD = 1.49 USD/GBP
Exchange rate of pound in Singapore dollars = 4.8 SGD/GBP

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

You are given the following exchange rate data:
Canadian Dollar: CAD 1.1280/USD
British Pound: USD
1.8840/GBP
(a) How many Canadian Dollars can be purchased with 1 British
Pound?
(b) If you learn that the cross rate quoted by the Bank is
actually CAD 2.1280/GBP, what would be your triangular arbitrage
profits if you could put USD $1,000,000 into this arbitrage? To get
full credits, you need to include step by step instructions on how
to carry out...

Calculate the possible rate for buying SGD (Singapore Dollar) in
exchange for selling jPY as well as the possible rate for selling
SGD in exchange for buying JPY. Assume that the exchange rates (Bid
- Offered rate) are quoted as follows : USD 1 = JPY 118.10-118.20,
USD 1 = SGD 1.7210-1.7215

Suppose that you are in Singapore with 10,000 Singapore dollars
(SGD) and you want to exchange them for euros for your trip to
Paris. The exchange shop gives you the following rates: Commission:
1%
USD/SGD = 1.2375
EUR/USD = 1.2800.
How many euros will you get for your Singapore dollars?

You are a U.S.-based treasurer with $1,000,000 to invest. The
dollar-euro exchange rate is quoted as $1.20 = €1.00 and the
dollar-pound exchange rate is quoted at $1.80 = £1.00. If a bank
quotes you a cross rate of £1.00 = €1.50 how much money can you
make via triangular arbitrage (in terms of dollars)?

Assume the following information:
USD/AUD, bid/ask: 0.68 / 0.72
USD/MXP, bid/ask: 0.072 / 0.075
MXP/AUD, bid/ask: 8.17 / 8.32
Assume you have 1 million USD to conduct one cycle of triangular
arbitrage. What will be your profit from implementing this
strategy? Remember to pay careful attention whether you're trading
at the bid or the ask with the bank.
