CFA Practice Question

The JPY/USD bid-ask rate observed in Tokyo is 80.4750 - 80.4883. An analyst just came up with an implied JPY/USD bid-ask rate based on EUR/USD and JPY/EUR rates. Which of the following implied bid-ask rate would seem to be wrong?

A. 80.4550 - 80.4795.
B. 80.4800 - 80.4900.
C. 80.4742 - 80.4748.
Correct Answer: C

Notice the ask rate in C (80.4748) is lower than the directly observed bid rate of 80.4750, which is impossible.

skarthi146 Well, this rate may be possible for a moment and then arbitrageurs jump in and then disappears. I think the question should be asking us which price will allow arbitrage.
