# Answer on Economics of Enterprise Question for LaMarcus Streeter

Question #7223

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%

The answer is D.

As one can obtain more Israeli shekels for a dollar in
the forward market, the forward currency is selling at a discount to the spot
rate. Thus, the amount of the discount is calculated as: (Forward rate − Spot
rate)/Spot rate.

% Discount = 8.35%

Thank you very much. This is such a great service you provided it at a great time. But I am wondering if there is an explanation because I did request an explanation of how it should be solved. If you can provide me with a brief explanation of how to solve it, that would be great.
