In the Forward/Futures problem set, how do we know that Speckley is short the Euro contract? Why can’t he be long the position? For the forward on the stock, we are told that he expects the stock price to increase (thus he goes long). But unless I’m missing something (which I’m sure I am), there is nothing to indicate that he took a short postion in the Euro contract- except the solution. Any help is much appreciated!
d*mn it, wrong forum, sorry everyone.
