Question

- The spot rate for the Omani Rial is $2.6008/Rial. The U.S. inflation rate is anticipated to be 1.3%. The Oman inflation rate is expected to be 7.5%. Both countries are expected to have a real interest rate of 1.5%. Show calculations.

A.) Based on the Fisher effect, calculate the U.S. nominal interest rate (x.xx%).

B.) Based on the Fisher effect, calculate the Uzbekistan nominal interest rate (x.xx%).

C.) Using purchasing power parity, calculate the expected spot rate in 1 year.

D.) Using the international Fisher effect, calculate the expected spot rate in 2 years.

Answer #1

B) Oman nominal Rate =(1+Oman Real Rate)*(1+Inflation)-1
=(1+1.5%)*(1+7.5%)-1 =9.1125% or 9.11%

C) Expected Spot Rate in 1 year using Purchasing Power =Spot
Rate*(1+US Inflation)/(1+Oman IInflation)

=2.6008*(1+1.3%)/(1+7.5%) =2.4508

D) Expected Spot Rate in 2 year using International Fischer
effect

=Spot Rate*(1+US nominal rate )^2/(1+Oman nominal rate)^2

=2.6008*(1+2.8195%)^2/(1+9.1125%)^2=2.3095

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.

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...

Given a current spot rate of 8.46 Swedish krona per U.S. dollar,
expected inflation rates of 4% per annum in the U.S. and 5% in
Sweden, use the formula for relative purchasing power parity to
estimate the one-year (forward) spot rate of krona per dollar.

James Smith, an international fund
manager, uses the concepts of purchasing power parity (PPP) and the
International Fisher Effect (IFE) to forecast spot exchange rates.
James gathers the financial information as follows:
Current rand spot exchange rate $0.188
Expected annual U.S. inflation 8%
Expected annual South African inflation 6%
Expected U.S. one-year interest rate 1%
Expected South African one-year interest rate 0.08%
Calculate the following exchange rates
(ZAR and USD refer to the South African rand and U.S. dollar,
respectively)....

The current spot rate between the euro and dollar is €1.0957/$.
The annual inflation rate in the U.S is expected to be 2.98 percent
and the annual inflation rate in euroland is expected to be 2.43
percent. Assuming relative purchasing power parity holds, what will
the exchange rate be in two years?

24.
Assume the spot exchange rate is £.6229. The expected inflation
rate in the U.K. is 3.8 percent and in the U.S. it is 2.9 percent.
What is the expected exchange rate three years from now if relative
purchasing power parity exists?
£.5391
£.6062
£.6399
£.6285
£.6233

The annual inflation rate in the US is expected to be 6%, while
it is expected to be 2.5% in Australia. The current spot rate(on
10/07/18) for the Australian Dollar (AD) is $0.85.
Required
i) According to Purchasing Power Parity, estimate the expected
percenatage change in the value of the AD during a one-year period
and calculate its AD expected values at 10/07/19.
ii) Suppose the value of the AD turned out to be $0.865 on
10/07/18, what is the...
