Question 3. A fixed rate bond with notional 1 pays annual coupons of c at times T1, T2, . . . , Tn where Ti+1 = Ti + 1 and notional 1 at time Tn. a) Write down the bond price BFXD c (t) at time t ≤ T0 in terms of ZCBs. b) Suppose t = T0 = 0. The yield of the bond is defined as the value Y such that B FXD c (0) = Xn i=1 c (1 + Y ) i + 1 (1 + Y ) n , that is, the rate at which IRR discounting gives the bond price. By summing a geometric series, show that BFXD c (0) = 1 if and only if Y = c. c) By writing a swap as the difference between a fixed rate bond and a floating rate bond, show that BFXD c (0) = 1 if and only if c = y0[0, Tn]. Remark 1. This exercise shows that the T-year spot swap rate is the bond coupon such that a T-maturity bond has price par, that is 100% of notional.
