You are to use a Black-Derman-Toy model to determine Fo,2[P(2, 3)], the forward price for time—2 delivery of a zero—coupon bond that pays 1 at time 3. In the Black-Derman-Toy model, each period is one year. The following effective annual interest rates are given: I’d = 30% ru = 60% Fad = 20% ruu : Determine 1000 >< Fo,2[P(2, 3)].
