57. Find the value of a call option written on 100 with a strike price of $1.00 = 1.00. In one period there are two possibilities: the exchange rate will move up by 15% or down by 15% (i.e.$1.15 = 1.00 or $0.85 = 1.00). The U.S. risk-free rate is 5% over the period. The risk-neutral probability of a dollar depreciation is 2 / 3 and the risk-neutral probability of the dollar strengthening is 1 / ##### We have textbook solutions for you!

Use the binomial option pricing model to find the value of a call option on 10,000 with a strike price of 12,500. The current exchange rate is 1.50/ 1.00 and in the next period the exchange rate can increase to 2.40/ or decrease to 0.9375/ 1.00 (i.e. u = 1.6 and d = 1/ u = 0.625). The current interest rates are i = 3% and are i = 4%. Choose the answer closest to yours. 59. Find the hedge ratio for a call option on 10,000 with a strike price of 12,500. The current exchange rate is 1.50/ 1.00 and in the next period the exchange rate can increase to 2.40/ or decrease to 0.9375/ 1.00 (i.e. u = 1.6 and d = 1/ u = 0.625). The current interest rates are i = 3% and are i = 4%. Choose the answer closest to yours. 60. You have written a call option on 10,000 with a strike price of$20,000. The current exchange rate is $2.00/ 1.00 and in the next period the exchange rate can increase to$4.00/ 1.00 or decrease to $1.00/ 1.00 (i.e. u = 2 and d = 1/ u = 0.5). The current interest rates are i$ = 3% and are i = 2%. Find the hedge ratio and use it to create a position in the underlying asset that will hedge your option position. A. Buy 10,000 today at $2.00/ 1.00 B. Enter into a short position in a futures contract on 6,666.67 C. Lend the present value of 6,666.67 today at i = 2%. D. Enter into a long position in a futures contract on 6,666.67 E. Both c) and d) would work F. None of the above 61. Draw the tree for a put option on$20,000 with a strike price of 10,000. The current exchange rate is 1.00 = $2.00 and in one period the dollar value of the pound will either double or be cut in half. The current interest rates are i$ = 3% and are i = 2%.
