Take the bond price data given below on 5 bonds. Each bond has a face value of $100 and pays the given coupon semi-annually starting at the next coupon payment dates as given. Follow the steps discussed in class to estimate the term structures of discount factors, spot interest rates, and forward interest rates. Coupon is the rate in per cent per year applied to the face value of a bond to determine the annual coupon in dollars, half of which is paid every six months on coupon payment dates. For example, Coupon of 10% for a bond with a face value of $100 will result in $10 in annual coupon and a payment of $5 on each coupon payment date every half year. Answer the following questions: 1-5: In the simplified bond price equation the coefficients of parameter “a” for the 5 bonds. 6-10: In the simplified bond price equation the coefficients of parameter “b” for the 5 bonds. 11-15: In the simplified bond price equation the coefficients of parameter “c” for the 5 bonds. 16-20: In the simplified bond price equation the left side number for the 5 bonds. 21: Estimated value of “a.” 22: Estimated value of “b.” 23: Estimated value of “c.” Bond QSP NextCoup Coupon YearsMat 1 106.02 0.132 11.60 0.632 2 106.59 0.144 12.20 1.144 3 107.16 0.156 12.80 1.656 4 107.73 0.168 13.40 2.168 5 108.30 0.180 14.00 2.680
