Default FA Task 6 question

In Task 6, did anyone else notice that on the Results tab the forward prices are being calculated every 10 quarters (instead of 20 like it is on the tasks 1-5 spreadsheet)? So if the mine closes and there is hedging, you are on 2.5-year cycles instead of 5-year. Is that a mistake?

I don't plan on changing the model, but just curious if anyone else noticed.

It isn't mentioned until Task 7, but the 2.5 year cycle is true. They shortened the period in anticipation of closing the mine anytime after a year.

Sounds like you stumbled upon it a little early. Well Done!

If you read the soa recommended study schedule, they talk about reading all of the material and going through the problem first. If you would have done this, you wouldn't have asked these unnecessary questions
