Quick question for everyone. In the question, we are looking for the FWD discount/premium for the JPY against the USD. I don’t think I have come across this terminology. The problem gives the FX rate of JPY/USD: 120. I would read this as 120JPY per Dollar. Is this the same thing as “JPY against the USD”?
If the quote is given as USD:JPY=120, the FWD premium/discount will be for USD and the JPY will be the opposite.
…needless to say I got it wrong…wasn’t sure how to interpret JPY against USD.
