a) What is the spot exchange rate for the US dollar on Monday, 14th , 2007 vis-à-vis the yen ?  What are the 30-day, 60 and 90-day forward exchanges rates?
b) Is the Japanese yen at a forward premium or forward discount relative to the US dollar?

d) If you expect to be paid 100 million yen by a Japanese buyer in 90 days, is there any simple way to hedge the risk arising from this future payment based on the data you have seen so far?
