Assume the expected USD/GBP exchange rate three months into the future remains constant at USD 1.50 per GBP. But the GBP 3-month deposit rate doubles to 10.0%. What is the new spot USD/GBP exchange rate in equilibrium.

  3. Plot the difference between USA 3-Month Euro-dollar deposit rate and the UK 3-monthEuro-sterling deposit rate from January 2000 to December 2008. What do you observe?Now plot the expected exchange rate change at the three month horizon for the USD/GBP exchange rate, assuming that investors have perfect foresight so that the expected exchange rate equals the future realized spot rate.
