I'm reading Becker book - FAR2-52 (Chapter 2, page 52), and it says: "The assets or liabilities resulting from foreign currency transactions should be recorded in the U.S. company's books using the exchange rate in effect at the date of the transaction."
I would take that to mean...they should be valued at their respective HISTORICAL RATEs
However there is also a paragraph (paragraph D) and example suggesting that your assets/liabilities be valued MARKED TO MARKET (i.e. FAIR MARKET VALUE) = CURRENT EXCHANGE RATE
Can someone help me make sense of chapter 2, page 52, paragraph letter E please? Are assets valued marked to market...or at historic rates.
