fwd2zero

Zero curve given forward curve

In R2017b, the specification of optional input arguments has changed. While the previous ordered inputs syntax is still supported, it may no longer be supported in a future release. Use the new optional name-value pair inputs: InputCompounding, InputBasis, OutputCompounding, and OutputBasis.

Syntax

[ZeroRates,CurveDates] = fwd2zero(ForwardRates,CurveDates,Settle)
[ZeroRates,CurveDates] = fwd2zero(___,Name,Value)

Description

example

[ZeroRates,CurveDates] = fwd2zero(ForwardRates,CurveDates,Settle) returns a zero curve given an implied forward rate curve and its maturity dates. If both inputs for CurveDates and Settle are serial date numbers or date character vectors, CurveDates is returned as serial date numbers. However, if either of the inputs for CurveDates and Settle are a datetime array, CurveDates is returned as a datetime array.

example

[ZeroRates,CurveDates] = fwd2zero(___,Name,Value) adds optional name-value pair arguments

Input Arguments

collapse all

Annualized implied forward rates, specified as a (NUMBONDS)-by-1 vector using decimal fractions. In aggregate, the rates in ForwardRates constitute an implied forward curve for the investment horizon represented by CurveDates. The first element pertains to forward rates from the settlement date to the first curve date.

Data Types: double

Maturity dates, specified as a NUMBONDS-by-1 vector using serial date numbers, date character vectors, or datetime arrays, that correspond to the ForwardRates.

Data Types: double | datetime | char

Common settlement date for ForwardRates, specified as serial date numbers, date character vectors, or datetime arrays.

Data Types: double | datetime | char

Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside single quotes (' '). You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

Example: [ZeroRates,CurveDates] = fwd2zero(ForwardRates,CurveDates,Settle,'InputCompounding',3,'InputBasis',5,'OutputCompounding',4,'OutputBasis',5)

Output Arguments

collapse all

Zero curve for the investment horizon represented by CurveDates, returned as a NUMBONDS-by-1 vector of decimal fractions. In aggregate, the rates in ZeroRates constitute a zero curve for the investment horizon represented by CurveDates.

Maturity dates that correspond to the ZeroRates, returned as a NUMBONDS-by-1 vector of maturity dates that correspond to the zero rates in ZeroRates. This vector is the same as the input vector CurveDates, but is sorted by ascending maturity.

If both inputs for CurveDates and Settle are serial date numbers or date character vectors, CurveDates is returned as serial date numbers. However, if either of the inputs for CurveDates and Settle are a datetime array, CurveDates is returned as a datetime array.
