Fin 448: Fixed-Income Securities Homework Solution 1 Wei Yang 1 Bootstrapping (1.1) . .. (1.4) We solve the following equations by the iterative procedure 98 . 16 = p 0 . 5 100 99 . 50 = p 0 . 5 3 . 5 2 + p 1 (100 + 3 . 5 2 ) 103 . 31 = p 0 . 5 6 . 625 2 + p 1 6 . 625 2 + p 1 . 5 (100 + 6 . 625 2 ) 99 . 63 = p 0 . 5 4 . 25 2 + p 1 4 . 25 2 + p 1 . 5 4 . 25 2 + p 2 (100 + 4 . 25 2 ) which yield p 0 . 5 = 0 . 9816 , p 1 = 0 . 9610 , p 1 . 5 = 0 . 9377 , p 2 = 0 . 9156 and translate to y 0 . 5 = 3 . 75% , y 1 = 4 . 02% , y 1 . 5 = 4 . 34% , y 2 = 4 . 46% (1.5) The annualized, semi-annually compounded yield for the 2-year Treasury is found by solving 99 . 63 = ± 4 . 25 2 ² ³ 1 + y 2 ´ 1 + ± 4 . 25 2 ² ³ 1 + y 2 ´ 2 + ± 4 . 25 2 ² ³ 1 + y 2 ´ 3 + ± 100 + 4 . 25 2 ² ³ 1 + y 2 ´ 4 which yields y = 4 . 45% (1.6) The par coupon rate is determined from 1 = p 0 . 5 ³ c 2 ´ + p 1 ³ c 2 ´ + p 1 . 5 ³ c 2 ´ + ... + p n ³ 1 + c 2 ´ to be c = 4 . 44% 1
