Has anyone done this exam yet? I am very confused with question 37 and 40 (P.132), please help!
I think the two questions are basically asking the same thing: how to hedge equity positoins using futures contracts. But the solution Schweser provided are very different:
–> For quesiton 37, the formula is: Number of futures = V(1+Rf)T/Pf(multiplier)
–> For question 40, the formula is: [(Bt-Bp)/Bf]*[Vp/(Pf)(Multiplier)]
I think the two questions are the same, and I used the second formula for both of them, and of course got wrong on the first one.
Can someone please provide some insights?
Thanks. Good luck to all.
