ootstrapping. Complete problem 31 of Chapter 10 (shown below), and submit to your
instructor. Show your calculations and the algebraic manipulation of the price equation
for the bond. In addition to solving the problem, write a 100 to 200 word essay on the
term structure of fixed income securities.
One method used to obtain an estimate of the term structure of interest rates is called
bootstrapping. Suppose you have a one-year zero coupon bond with a rate of r1 and a
two-year bond with an annual coupon payment of C. To bootstrap the two-year rate, you
can set up the following equation for the price (P) of the coupon bond:
Because you can observe all of the variables except r2, the spot rate for two years, you
can solve for this interest rate. Suppose there is a zero coupon bond with one year to
maturity that sells for $949 and a two-year bond with a 7.5 percent coupon paid annually
that sells for $1,020. What is the interest rate for two years? Suppose a bond with three
years until maturity and an 8.5 percent annual coupon sells for $1,029. What is the
interest rate for three years?
