Question: Choi Golf Co uses titanium in the production of its

Choi Golf Co. uses titanium in the production of its specialty drivers. Choi anticipates that it will need to purchase 200 ounces of titanium in October 2010, for clubs that will be shipped in the holiday shopping season. However, if the price of titanium increases, this will increase the cost to produce the clubs, which will result in lower profit margins. To hedge the risk of increased titanium prices, on May 1, 2010, Choi enters into a titanium futures contract and designates this futures contract as cash flow hedge of the anticipated titanium purchase. The notional amount of the contract is 200 ounces, and the terms of the contract give Choi the right and the obligation to purchase titanium at a price of ¥50,000 per ounce. The price will be good until the contract expires on November 30, 2010.
Assume the following data with respect to the price of the call options and the titanium inventory purchase.
