Urgent! Need Help on Task6 in New FA
In task6
The actual forward price is lower than the expected forward price by about $2741 per quarter, how do you change the exchange rate assumptions to reconcile the difference. For the cost 1 and cost 2, I changed the energy costs and inflation rate assumption, still can not bring the expected cost1 to the actual level and cost2 is close to the actual after the revisions. Whatelse I can do next with cost1? Many thanks!

Anyone can help me with this task? I'm not quite sure how to start this task..

There are useful threads in the FAP forum within the modules. If I was stuck I used those as a starting point for "what the general goal was".
Let me know if you still don't understand what they are looking for. You can always ask a colleague if he has any ideas, too.

This is the task that requires the most preparatory work. Expect to spend some time figuring out what to do before you get something you will write about.
As HG said, there are some helpful threads on the FAP forum. For Task 6, one of the threads gives you a step by step guide to determine what to do. To the OP: the exchange rate assumption is what is given in the task. As always, you can enter a new set of assumptions on the tab of the spreadsheet that the instructions indicate. Not sure why this matters for this task.

For task 5 & 7, do we need to make our letters to client structured like the end of module exercise 1 (i.e. executive summary, intro, data, etc.) ?

i think in mod 1 they asked for a memorandum. in the fa, they are asking for letters.

Thank you. What's the difference between formal memorandum (as in Mod 1) and letter (as requested in FA)?
