ICBC offered forward exchange settlement service to the enterprise, fixing the forward exchange rate
of USD against RMB in three months at 6.
Assuming that the interest rate parity holds, the forward exchange rate
will be 97.
In an efficient market forward exchange rate
is the sum of the expected future spot rates plus the risk premium (Byers, Peel, 1991).
5% for the dual currency Eurobond, and 8% for the US dollar bond) and corresponding forward exchange rate
Stationarity tests were initially carried out on the logarithm of the spot and forward exchange rate
series reported in Table 8.
As equation (1) must approximately hold all the time, intervention that changes the forward exchange rate
must also change the spot exchange rate.
For this reason, we have chosen to estimate the distribution over the relative deviation from the forward exchange rate
instead of different exchange rate levels.
This condition derives from two components: (1) the arbitrage condition of covered interest parity, which states that the forward exchange rate
relative to the spot exchange rate equals the difference in interest rates (and which is well substantiated in the data), and (2) the hypothesis that the forward exchange rate
equals the expected future spot exchange rate.
Most firms grossly overestimate the cost of hedging their foreign exchange exposure; the effective comparison is between today's forward exchange rate
and the estimate of the spot exchange rate on the date the forward exchange contract matures, for an extended series of transactions.
f + e = 0), where f is the forward exchange rate
), the risk premium is equal to the difference between the forward exchange rate
and the expected future exchange rate.
At one time, it was assumed that the forward exchange rate
represented the market's expectation of the actual future value of the exchange rate.
If one defines the risk premium, RP, as the difference between the forward exchange rate
and the corresponding expected future spot exchange rate, then (assuming a continuous time framework and covered interest rate parity) it is easy to show that [Mathematical Expression Omitted] where * is the nominal return in country 0 on asset 0 (country 0's nominally risk-free asset), * is the nominal return on country j's riskfree asset in j, and E([dS.
