Chapter 14 HW c.) If the United States wanted to maintain a fixed exchange rate of R = 1.5 with S* £ , the amount of pound reserves would gain/lose 50 million £ per day. 3. Assume the following exchange rates: $2 = £1 in New York ¥410 = £1 in London ¥200 = $1 in Tokyo Indicate how profitable triangular, or three-point, arbitrage can take place. Answer: A three-point arbitrage operates in the same way as a two-point arbitrage to ensure consistent indirect exchange rates between the three currencies in three monetary centers. Profitable arbitrage takes place by taking $2 and exchanging it for £ 1. Then, take the £ 1 and exchange it for ¥410. If you do the exchange in this manner, you will get ¥10 more than if you went straight from $2 to ¥. Had you done it this way, you would have only gotten ¥400 in the exchange.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
