61.6 l A zero rate (or spot rate ), for term T is today’s ( t0 ) rate of interest earned on an investment that provides a payoff only at time t0+T l Lets denote this as R(t0,T) l More formally using our earlier notation; for a cash flow, CF(t0+T) , to be received on t0+T , its present value, PV(t0,T) = CF(t0+T) e-R(t 0 ,T)xT = CF(t0+T) x d(t0,T) where d(t0,T) is the discount function l It is important to recognize that today’s discount function, like the spot rate, is a function of term , T . l A cash flow, CF(t0+T) , happens on a date, t0+T .

81.8 Bond Pricing l To calculate the cash price of a bond, discount each cash flow at the appropriate zero rate l In our example, the theoretical price of a 2-year bond providing a 6% coupon semiannually is 3 3 3 103 98 39 0 05 0 5 0 058 1 0 0 064 1 5 0 068 2 0 e e e e - × - × - × - × + + + = . . . . . . . . .

91.9 Bond Yield l The bond yield is the single discount rate that makes the present value of the cash flows on the bond equal to the market price of the bond l Suppose that the market price of the bond in our example equals its theoretical price of 98.39 l The bond yield (continuously compounded) is given by solving (numerically) to get y =0.0676 or 6.76%. 3 3 3 103 98 39 0 5 1 0 1 5 2 0 e e e e y y y y - × - × - × - × + + + = . . . . .
