Study Session 4: Economics for Valuation
I have a doubt, i hope you can help me to solve it, i would appreciate a lot.
If a body is an independent regulator, how we can know if it is a SRO or instead it is not an SRO.
Thanks in advance!
In the real world, we would expect that when a central bank of a particular country raises interest rates, that country’s currency starts to appreciate, much like the US dollar has appreciated ever since the Fed started raising rates since December 2017.
Why then, does the Covered and Uncovered Interest Rate Parity state that the currency with the higher interest rate should trade at a forward discount and a lower expected spot price in the future, (respectively for Covered & Uncovered).
I would like to know how can I understand (in layman terms) the definition of portfolio balance channel. I have read it but I can’t get what it implies, since the debt sustainability channel seems like quite similar.
I couldn’t find any other topic that could provide a good answer.
I hope you can help me about the question 26 of currency exchange rates.
The objective is calculate de mark-to-market value. The only thing i do not understand is how they know the forward points that is - 0.0016.
The information given is the following USD/CHF quotes are currently available in the market:
30 days 1.033613
90 days 1.081081
180 days 1.061798
In this problem we entered into a 180-day forward contract 90 days ago.
How do you know if Forward Rate Parity holds (i.e. forward rate is an unbiased predictor of future spot rate)? What does it mean “to hold”? If this hold, then Uncovered IRP holds, but I’m just having a bit of trouble grasping what this truly means. Honestly, I’m not even sure if I’m this question correctly. Thanks!
I’m building a model for an equipment rental company. The company accounts for “Depreciation of equipments on rent” within its Cost of Sales. Therefore, in its reported EBITDA, depreciation of equipments on rent is not added back.
Should I adjust the EBITDA by adding back the depreciation of equipment on rent please? Would really appreciate your thoughts, thank you!
In the context of expansionary / restrictive fiscal policy, what does it mean by a decrease in the policy rate?
And just to confirm, does more gov spending = expansionary fiscal policy?
From CFAI book:
I have a couple of questions about currencies:
1. Marked to market: I keep getting confused with the cashflow calculation. In some cases we subtract the new all in fwd rate from the old all in fwd rate. In others, we do the opposite. What is the logic? I understand it has something to do with long/short and appreciation/ depreciation of the base currency.
2. How can we calculate the cross rate for C/A: A/B bid offer (100/100.1) and C/B bid offer (101/101.1). Do we take the inverse of each figure?
