# Currency Strangles (See Appendix B in this chapter.) Assume the following options are currently available for British pounds (Â£): Call option premium on British pounds = \$0.04 per unit. Put option premium on British pounds = \$0.03 per unit. Call option strike price = \$1.56. Put option strike price = \$1.53. One option contract represents Â£ 31,250. Construct a worksheet for a long strangle using these options. Determine the break-even point(s) for a strangle. If the spot price of the pound at option expiration is \$1.55, what is the total profit or loss to the strangle buyer? If the spot price of the pound at option expiration is \$1.50, what is the total profit or loss to the strangle writer?
