On October 31, 20X4, Muskoka bought bedroom furniture set from a supplier in the United States for US$ 2,000. The invoice called for payment to be made on February 28, 20X5. On November 1, 20X4, Muskoka entered into a forward contract with a bank to hedge the existing monetary position by agreeing to buy US$ 2,000 on February 28, 20X5, at a rate of US$ 1 C$ 1.15. Muskoka’s year-end is December 31. On February 28, 20X5, Muskoka settled the forward contract with the bank and the US supplier was paid.
