1. (5 points) The 6 1
4 T-bond (US) of August 15, 2023, was priced on March 28, 2014 to
yield 2.551% to maturity. What was the quoted price (in dollars per hundred dollars
of face value)? If you had bought the bond, how much would you have been
invoiced? State the quoted price in hundreds and 32nds. Note that you are required
to compute the bond’s price and accrued interest both using, and not using, Excel’s
PRICE() an ACCRINT() functions. Plot the price-yield relationship for the bond. To do
that, compute a set of bond’s clean prices for different yields-to-maturity in cells

attached file.

next coupon payments (relative to March 15, 2014), the number of days in the
coupon period, the number of days elapsed since the last coupon payment, the
accrued interest, and the invoice price. Compute the yield-to-maturity for each bond.

of zero prices and spot rates on coupon payment dates for the bond, and then use
the method of replicating portfolios. Find the yield-to-maturity for the bond.
