Individual Assignment

Imagine now is his July 10, 2020. A UK company has an invoice for $6.65 million due on 26th August 2020. They are concerned that exchange rate fluctuations may increase the pound cost, so they are effectively fixing the pound cost through foreign exchange futures. The current spot rate is $/£1.71110. £/$ futures (contract size £) are available on the CME Europe exchange.

Expires in September – 1.71035

Expires in December – 1.70865

The contract size is £100,000 and the futures are quoted in USD per £1. The futures contract specification states a tick size of $0.00001 and a tick value of $1.

August 26th results:

The following happened on August 26th

Correct Answer: Spot Rate – $/£1.65770

September Futures Price – $/£1.65750

In the scenario above, his CME contract specs for £/$ futures state that per contract he requires an initial margin of $1,375. The maintenance margin is $1,250 per contract. The settlement price for this futures contract is:

July 11 (Friday) settlement price 1.70925

July 14 (Mon) Settlement price 1.70805

July 15 (Tuesday) settlement price 1.71350
