Explanation of Answers of BFM Case study 5:

  1. The rate that will be used to transact with Mr. Aman and the amount (in INR) that will be involved will be calculated in the following way:

Because it is a sale transaction, the same day rate will be applicable i.e. Cash rate = Rs. 45.60. 

The amount = Rs. 45.60 x 2,000.00 = Rs. 91,200.00

  1. The rate that will be used to transact with Mr. Bansal and the amount (in INR) that will be involved will be calculated in the following way: 

Because it is a purchase transaction, the next day rate will be applicable i.e. TOM Rate = Rs. 45.55. 

The amount = Rs. 45.55 x 2,000.00 = Rs. 91,100.00

  1. The rate that will be used to transact with Mr. Canada and the amount (in INR) that will be involved will be calculated in the following way:

Because it is a purchase transaction, the spot day rate will be applicable = Rs. 45.60. The holiday’s period will be excluded while calculating. 

The amount = Rs. 45.60 x 2,000.00 = Rs. 91,200.00

  1. The rate that will be used to transact with Mr. Doctor and the amount (in INR) that will be involved will be calculated in the following way:

1-II 

2-I

Explanations of Answers of BFM Case study 6:

  1. The FC rate at which the forward contract will be booked in case the margin is not considered will be calculated:

Bank will consider the forward premium for June because amount can be received on any day in July including 1st of July. Therefore, the premium amount is 31 paise. 

The rate would be:

Spot rate = Rs. 45.10 

Add: Forward premium for June = Rs. 00.31

The FC rate = Rs. 45.41

  1. The FC rate at which the forward contract will be booked in case the margin is considered will be calculated:

For calculating the forward rate, the bank will consider the forward premium for June as amount can be received on any day in July including 1st of July. Thus, the premium amount = 31 paise. 

The rate would be:

Spot rate = Rs. 45.10

Add: Forward premium for Jun = Rs. 00.31

Rate = Rs. 45.41

Less Margin = Rs. 00.10

The quoted FC Rate = Rs. 45.31
