Forward Rate Forecast Assume that you obtain a quote for a one-year forward rate on the Mexican peso. Assume that Mexico’s one-year interest rate is 40 percent, whereas the U.S. one-year interest rate is 7 percent. Over the next year, the peso depreciates by 12 percent. Do you think the forward rate overestimated the spot rate one year ahead in this case? Explain.
