Since the price of the 2–year coupon Treasury security is equal to par, the above sum must equalthe bond price which is \$100. Therefore,1.95(1.0150)1+1.95(1.0165)2+1.95(1.017527)3+101.95(1 +z4)4= 100The solution isz4=.019582 =1.9582%. Doubling this yield, we obtain the theoretical 2–year spotrate bond-equivalent yield of3.9164%.Q9–The plot represents the term structure of default–free spot rate for maturities up to 2 years.Based on the limited data provided, what can you say the slope of the yield curve?

The T–notes bond prices will rise. The yield, being inversely related to price, will drop.Q12–T.Q13–F.Q14–d=11 +r=r= 20%Q15–T.Q16–2, 3, 5, 7, and 10–year notes & 30–year bonds pay coupons.1–month, 3–month, 6–month, and 1–year bills do not pay coupons.Q17–The spread or the difference between the two rates is 6.5%-5.4% = 1.1%. Expressed in basis point,the spread is 1.1×100 = 110 basis points.5
