You are the financial manager of a company and you are presented with this scenario: The exchange rate is 0.95 $/€, the euro-denominated continuously compounded interest rate is 4%, the dollar-denominated continuously compounded interest rate is 6%, and the price of a 1-year 0.93-strike European call on the euro is $0.0571. Calculate the price of a 0.93-strike European put.

  1. Assume that oil forward prices for 1 year, 2 years, and 3 years are $18, $19, and $20. The 1-year effective annual interest rate is 6.5%, the 2-year interest rate is 7.0%, and the 3-year interest rate is 7.5%.

    a. What is the 3-year swap price?
