Question

The spot rate for the CRL is $0.0587/CRL. The U.S. inflation rate is anticipated to be 2.8%. The Country L inflation rate is expected to be 5.8%. Both countries are expected to have a real interest rate of 1.2%. Show calculations.

a.)Based on the Fisher effect, calculate the U.S. nominal interest rate.

b.) Based on the Fisher effect, calculate the Country L nominal interest rate.

c.)Using the international Fisher effect, calculate the expected spot rate in 3 years.

Answer #1

a.) U.S. nominal interest rate = [(1+real interest rate)*(1+ U.S. inflation rate)] - 1 = [(1+0.012)*(1+0.028)] - 1 = (1.012*1.028) - 1 = 1.0403 - 1 = 0.0403 or 4.03%

b.) Country L nominal interest rate = [(1+real interest rate)*(1+ Country L.inflation rate)] - 1 = [(1+0.012)*(1+0.058)] - 1 = (1.012*1.058) - 1 = 1.0707 - 1 = 0.0707 or 7.07%

c.) expected spot rate in 3 years = spot rate*[(1+Country L nominal interest rate)no. of years/(1+U.S. nominal interest rate)no. of years)]

expected spot rate in 3 years = $0.0587/CRL*[(1+0.0707)3/(1+0.0403)3] = $0.0587/CRL*(1.07073/1.04033) = $0.0587/CRL*(1.227448863243/1.125837720827) = $0.0587/CRL*1.0902538088183438196645513539353 = $0.0640/CRL

expected spot rate in 3 years is $0.0640/CRL.

The U.S nominal annual rate of interest is 5% and the Malaysian
annual nominal rate of interest on the Ringgit is 13%. At the same
time, the spot exchange rate is 3 MYR per USD and the real rate is
2% in both the US and Malaysia.
What is the one year forecast of the MYR per USD spot exchange
rate, assuming the International Fisher effect holds?
Describe the potential problem with your forecast in part A. If
you determined...

Due to the integrated nature of their capital markets, investors
in both the U.S. and U.K. require the same real interest rate,
2.5%, on their lending. There is a consensus in capital markets
that the annual inflation rate is likely to be 3% in the U.S. and
2% in the U.K. for next year. The spot exchange rate is currently
E$/£ = 1.4.
a. Compute the nominal interest rate per annum in both the U.S.
and U.K., assuming that the...

1. You observe that one U.S. dollar is currently equal to 3.6
Brazilian reals in the spot market. The one year US
interest rate is 7% and the one year Brazilian interest rate is 4%.
One year later, you observe that one U.S. dollar is now equal to
3.2 Brazilian reals in the spot market. You would have made a
profit if you had:
Borrowed U.S. dollars and invested in U.S. dollars
Borrowed Brazilian reals and invested in Brazilian reals
Borrowed...

Suppose that the nominal rate of interest is 5% and the expected
rate of inflation is 2%. Whats is the expected real rate of
interest according to Fisher? Calculate the after-tax expected real
rate of assuming a 30% marginal tax rate. If inflation expectations
increase by 2%, what will be the new nominal rate according to
fisher? According to darby/feldstein? What should happen to bond
prices and stock prices if the expected rate of inflation
increase

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

Which Exchange Rate Forecast Technique Should MNCs Use?
POINT: Use the spot rate to forecast. When a U.S.-based MNC firm
conducts financial budgeting, it must estimate the values of its
foreign currency cash flows that will be received by the parent.
Since it is well documented that firms can not accurately forecast
future values, MNCs should use the spot rate for budgeting. Changes
in economic conditions are difficult to predict, and the spot rate
reflects the best guess of the...
