    In finance, the exchanges rates occur between a two currencies that state how much one currency is has a value in terms of the other comparative currency. It is the worth of a foreign countries currency in terms of our home nation’s currency.

    I have the information about the exchange rate it is the rate at which one currency is converted into a different.
    International businesses make use of foreign exchange markets when:

    The exchange rate is done between a pair of party that gives permission to trade with two different currencies at the current moment. The spot exchange rate is generally at or secure to the current market rate because the business deal happen in real time and not at various point in the future. Some analysts suppose that forward rates are a perfect analyst of upcoming spot rates, though several others disagreement this.

    Re: Spot exchange rate

    I came to hear that the interest rate on South Korean government securities with per year maturity is up to about four percent and the predictable price rises rate for the coming year is two percent. The US interest rate on government securities with per year maturity is seven percent and the estimated rate of price rises is five percent. The current spot exchange rate for Korea won is $1 = W1200. Forecast the spot exchange rate per year from at the moment. Do anyone have any answer related to this.

    In order to reply this query, we must utilize the Interest Rate equivalence condition, which states that the estimated return on deal in dollar securities must equal the estimated return on deal in the foreign currency-denominated securities.

    Fundamentally, the thought of this situation is that if you spend one dollar now in moreover to the US government securities or in Korea government securities, the projected amount of dollars you will obtain in one year is equal. So let's make out how we can make use of this situation in order to gain the predicted exchange rate in one year.

    If we spend One dollar now in US securities, we will have 1.07 dollar in a single year. Let us see what occurs if we spend the same one dollar in Korean securities. In order to purchase the Korean government securities, we must initially convert the one dollar into wons. So we will get up to W1,200. And if we spend the W1,200 in Korean government securities. Since the interest rate is four percent, we will have 1200*(1.04)=W1,248.

    Therefore, investing one dollar today in Korean securities gives W1,248 in a single year. The interest rate parity, then, imply that this W1,248 wons must be equivalent to the 1.07 dollars, so that the arrival is the same irrespectively of where we formulate the investment. From that impartiality, we get the exchange rate:

    1.07 dollars = 1,248 wons
    1 dollar = 1248/1.07 = 1,166.35 wons

    So the estimated exchange rate of a single year from the present moment must be $1 = W1,166.35. Otherwise, everybody would select to spend in only one of the two selections.
