Fall 2010 Investment  2 The Price-Rate Function for a Zero 100 bp At a rate of 5%, the price is 0.2273 If rates fall to 4%, the price is 0.3048 The actual change is 0.077 Using a linear approximation, the change is about 0.0665

Fall 2010 Investment  3 Computing dollar duration for a zero. .. Recall By this definition, the dollar duration of the zero is directly related to the slope of the price-rate function. Example: The dollar duration of $1 par of a 30-year zero at an interest rate of 5% is 6.65, as illustrated in the last slide: -0.0665/(-0.01)=0.0665/0.01=6.65. We can use calculus to compute the slope of the price-rate function and get an explicit formula for the dollar duration of any zero.

Fall 2010 Investment  6 Taylor Series A theorem from calculus says that the value of a function can be approximated near a given point using its "Taylor series" around that point . Using only the first two derivatives, the Taylor series approximation is: 2 0 0 0 0 0 ) ( ) ( ' ' 2 1 ) ( ) ( ' ) ( ) ( : x x x f x x x f x f x f or - × + - × -
