2. If the spot rate of the Israeli shekel is 5.51 shekels per dollar and the 180-day forward rate is 5.97 shekels per dollar, then the forward rate for the Israeli shekel is selling at a ________________ to the spot rate. a. premium of 8% b. premium of 18% c. discount of 18% d. discount of 8% e. premium of 16%

As one can obtain more Israeli shekels for a dollar in

rate)/Spot rate.
