zero2pyld

Par yield curve given zero curve

Syntax

[ParRates, CurveDates] = zero2pyld(ZeroRates, CurveDates, Settle)
[ParRates, CurveDates] = zero2pyld(ZeroRates, CurveDates, Settle,
Name, Value)

In R2015b, 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.

Input Arguments

ZeroRates

A number of bonds (NUMBONDS)-by-1 vector of annualized zero rates, as decimal fractions. In aggregate, the rates constitute an implied zero curve for the investment horizon represented by CurveDates.

CurveDates

A NUMBONDS-by-1 vector of maturity dates (as serial date numbers) that correspond to the zero rates.

Settle

A serial date number or date string that is the common settlement date for the zero rates.

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: [ParRates,CurveDates] = zero2pyld(ZeroRates,CurveDates, Settle,'OutputCompounding',3,'OutputBasis',5,'InputCompounding',4,'InputBasis',5)

'OutputCompounding' — Compounding frequency of output par ratesif InputCompounding is 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, or 12 and OutputCompounding is not specified, the value of InputCompounding is used. If InputCompounding is 0 (simple), -1 (continuous), or 365 (daily), a valid OutputCompounding value must also be specified. If neither InputCompounding nor OutputCompounding are specified, the default is 2 (semiannual) for both. (default) | scalar

Compounding frequency of the output par rates, specified as a scalar with allowed values:

  • 1 — Annual compounding

  • 3 — Compounding three times per year

  • 4 — Quarterly compounding

  • 6 — Bimonthly compounding

  • 12 — Monthly compounding

Data Types: single | double

'OutputBasis' — Day count basis of output par ratesif OutputBasis is not specified, it is assigned the value specified for InputBasis. If neither InputBasis nor OutputBasis are specified, the default is 0 (actual/actual) for both. (default) | scalar

Description

[ParRates, CurveDates] = zero2pyld(ZeroRates, CurveDates, Settle) returns a par yield curve given a zero curve and its maturity dates.

[ParRates, CurveDates] = zero2pyld(ZeroRates, CurveDates, Settle, Name, Value) returns a par yield curve given a zero curve and its maturity dates using optional name-value pair arguments for InputCompounding, InputBasis, OutputCompounding, and OutputBasis.

ParRates

A NUMBONDS-by-1 vector of annualized par yields, as decimal fractions. (Par yields = coupon rates.) In aggregate, the yield rates in ParRates constitute a par yield curve for the investment horizon represented by CurveDates.

CurveDates

A NUMBONDS-by-1 vector of maturity dates (as serial date numbers) that correspond to the par yield rates. This vector is the same as the input vector CurveDates, but is sorted by ascending maturity.

Compute Par Yield Curve Given a Zero Curve and Maturity Dates

Given a zero curve over a set of maturity dates, a settlement date, and annual compounding for the input zero curve and monthly compounding for the output par rates, compute a par yield curve.

Demonstrate a Roundtrip From zero2pyld to pyld2zero

Given the following zero curve and its maturity dates, return the ParRates.

Settle = datenum('01-Feb-2013');

CurveDates = [datenum('01-Feb-2014')
    datenum('01-Feb-2015')
    datenum('01-Feb-2016')
    datenum('01-Feb-2018')
    datenum('01-Feb-2020')
    datenum('01-Feb-2023')
    datenum('01-Feb-2033')
    datenum('01-Feb-2043')];

OriginalZeroRates = [.11 0.30 0.64 1.44 2.07 2.61 3.29 3.55]'/100;

OutputCompounding = 1;
OutputBasis = 0;
InputCompounding = 1;
InputBasis = 0;

ParRates = zero2pyld(OriginalZeroRates, CurveDates, Settle, ...
'OutputCompounding', OutputCompounding, 'OutputBasis', OutputBasis, ...
'InputCompounding', InputCompounding, 'InputBasis', InputBasis)
ParRates =

    0.0142
    0.0202
    0.0251

    0.0331

Using the ParRates, use the pyld2zero function to return the ZeroRatesOut and determine the roundtrip error.

ZeroRatesOut = pyld2zero(ParRates, CurveDates, Settle, ...
'OutputCompounding', OutputCompounding, 'OutputBasis', OutputBasis, ...
'InputCompounding', InputCompounding, 'InputBasis', InputBasis)

max(abs(OriginalZeroRates - ZeroRatesOut)) % Roundtrip error
ZeroRatesOut =

    0.0030
    0.0064
    0.0144
