It is now Feb 1. NoRisk Inc. expects to buy 100 million ounces of silver at the beginning of May. Assume that Silver futures contracts have delivery months in April, June, and August (Assume delivery on the first day of the delivery month). Each contract is for the delivery of 25 million ounces. Assume that the futures price on CME for silver equals its theoretical price.Storage costs will be continuously incurred at a rate of 2% per annum. The continuously compounded risk-free rate is 10% per annum. Spot price of silver on Feb 1 is $10/oz. Spot prices at the future dates will be as follows (we do not obviously know these prices today):
April 1: $10.30/oz
May 1: $10.50/oz
June 1: $10.40/oz
July 1: $10.20/oz
Aug 1: $10.10/oz
