Price of certificate of deposit

## Syntax

```[Price, AccrInt] = cdprice(Yield, CouponRate, Settle, Maturity,IssueDate, Basis)

```

## Arguments

 Yield Simple yield to maturity over the basis denominator. CouponRate Coupon interest rate in decimal. Settle Settlement date. Settle must be earlier than Maturity. Maturity Maturity date. IssueDate Issue date. Basis (Optional) Day-count basis of the instrument. 0 = actual/actual (default)1 = 30/360 (SIA)2 = actual/3603 = actual/3654 = 30/360 (BMA)5 = 30/360 (ISDA)6 = 30/360 (European)7 = actual/365 (Japanese)8 = actual/actual (ICMA)9 = actual/360 (ICMA)10 = actual/365 (ICMA)11 = 30/360E (ICMA) 12 = actual/actual (ISDA)13 = BUS/252For more information, see basis.

Each required input must be some certificates of deposit (NCDS)-by-1 or 1-by-NCDS conforming vector or scalar. The optional Basis argument may be either a NCDS-by-1 or a 1-by-NCDS vector, a scalar, or the empty matrix ([]).

## Description

[Price, AccrInt] = cdprice(Yield, CouponRate, Settle, Maturity, IssueDate, Basis) computes the price of a certificate of deposit given its yield.

Price is the clean price of the certificate of deposit per \$100 of face value.

AccruedInt is the accrued interest payable at settlement per unit of face value.

This function assumes that the certificates of deposit pay interest at maturity. Because of the simple interest treatment of these securities, the function is best used for short-term maturities (less than 1 year). The default simple interest calculation is the actual/360 convention.

### Compute the Price and Accrued Interest for a Certificate of Deposit

This example shows how to compute the price and the accrued interest due on the settlement date, given a certificate of deposit with the following characteristics.

```Yield           =  0.0525;
CouponRate      =  0.05;
Settle          =  '02-Jan-02';
Maturity        =  '31-Mar-02';
IssueDate       =  '1-Oct-01';

[Price, AccruedInt] = cdprice(Yield, CouponRate, Settle, ...
Maturity, IssueDate)
```
```Price =

99.9233

AccruedInt =

1.2917

```
