I partially understand why the BoF must balance to zero since there is double-entry accounting in the current and financial account. However, if a foreigner purchases stock in a US company, the financial account will increase but I cannot see how the current account will decrease by a corresponding amount. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
