,
given NUMBONDS
bonds with SIA date parameters and
clean prices (excludes accrued interest), returns the bond equivalent
yields to maturity.
Yield = bndyield(Price, CouponRate, Settle, Maturity,
bonds with SIA
date parameters and clean prices (excludes accrued interest) and optional
inputs, returns the bond equivalent yields to maturity.
Period, Basis, EndMonthRule, IssueDate, FirstCouponDate,
LastCouponDate, StartDate, Face)
Yield = bndyield(Price, CouponRate, Settle, Maturity,
accepts optional inputs as one or more commaseparated
parameter/value pairs. 'ParameterName'
, ParameterValue
,
...)'ParameterName'
is
the name of the parameter inside single quotes. ParameterValue
is
the value corresponding to 'ParameterName'
.
Specify parameter/value pairs in any order. Names are caseinsensitive.
Note:
All nonscalar or empty matrix input arguments must be either 

Clean price of the bond (current price without accrued interest). 

Decimal number indicating the annual percentage rate used to determine the coupons payable on a bond. 

Settlement date. A vector of serial date numbers or date strings. 

Maturity date. A vector of serial date numbers or date strings. 
Enter the following inputs using an ordered syntax or as parameter/value pairs. You cannot mix ordered syntax with parameter/value pairs.

Coupons per year of the bond. A vector of integers. Values are Default: 

Daycount basis of the instrument. A vector of integers.
For more information, see basis. Default: 

Endofmonth rule. A vector. This rule applies only when Default: 

Issue date for a bond. Default: If you do not specify an 

Date when a bond makes its first coupon payment; used when bond
has an irregular first coupon period. When Default: If you do not specify a 

Last coupon date of a bond before the maturity date; used when
bond has an irregular last coupon period. In the absence of a specified Default: If you do not specify a 

Date when a bond actually starts (the date from which a bond
cash flow is considered). To make an instrument forwardstarting,
specify this date as a future date. If you do not specify Default: If you do not specify 

Face or par value. Default: 
Enter the following inputs only as parameter/value pairs.

Compounding frequency for yield calculation. By default, SIA bases (0–7) and BUS/252 use a semiannual compounding convention and ICMA bases (8–12) use an annual compounding convention. Default: SIA bases (0–7) and BUS/252 use a semiannual compounding convention and ICMA bases (8–12) use an annual compounding convention. 

Basis used to compute the discount factors for computing the yield. The default behavior is for SIA bases to use the actual/actual day count to compute discount factors. If you use ICMA day counts and BUS/252, the specified bases are used. Default: SIA bases use the 

Compounding convention for computing the yield of a bond in
the last coupon period. This computation is based on only the last
coupon and the face value to be repaid. Acceptable values are Default:
