If your no hike scenario is 12.5bps and a hike scenario is 37.5 bps, then FF at 27bps and probability of 72% would be a positive expected value: (37.5-27)*0.72 + (12.5-27)*0.28 = 3.5. Unless you think betting for/against the hike should be a non-zero expected pay-off... 4 5 months 1 week

If you swap your USDs for 5 years to invest in JPY bonds, you will get an extra 80 bps for willing to lend USD and hold JPY, so no - you can't say that 220 bps in USD is... 2 6 months 3 weeks
