Derivative and Fixed Income Securities - Question 1

Part I

Initial margin requirement= 60000 x 15.29 x 10% X 2 cents + $ 1200

= $ 3,035

Loan from broker = 60000 x 15.29 x 2 cents x 90%

= $ 16,513

 Margin call= 16,513/1-0.10= $ 18,347

Hence, price at which margin call will be recd= 18,347*100/(60,000*2)= 15.28 cents

Part II

Higher the volatility, higher the futures price. Hence, the initial margin requirement will also increase

Derivative and Fixed Income Securities - Question 2

Part I

Price of Call Option= Intrinsic value of call option + Time value of call option

Intrinsic value of call option (XYZ July 40)= $ 45- $ 40= $ 5

Since, price of one of the option is $ 8, it is price of XYZ July 40 call as time value of option can not be negative

Hence, time vlue of XYZ July 40 call = $ 3 and price is $ 8

Part II

Under Strategy A, the buyer of the option can buy share at a strike price of $ 40

Under Strategy B, the buyer of the option can buy share at a strike price of $ 50

Hence Strategy B offers a higher level of protection.
