Dealer A provides quotes for spot market transactions, S(t) Willing to buy and sell up to 10 M EUR @ 1.44 – 1.45 USD/EUR . Dealer B provides quotes for forward market transactions in one year F(t, t+1 year) Willing to buy and sell up to 8 M EUR one year forward @ 1.41 – 1.42 USD/EUR.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
