were as follows:

a) What
was the one-year forward rate last year?

b) What
was the one-year forward rate for two years in the future last year?

c) Using
the current yield curve, what is the relationship between the forward rate and
what actually happened?

d) If
the forward rate is a prediction of the rates next year, what will a two-year
zero sell for next year?

The
prices are all ex-coupon. That is, they are the price you would pay
immediately after the coupon has been paid. Thus, when you pay that
price, you will receive the next coupon one period later.

a) What
is the yield to maturity on Bond C?

b) If
the yield curve were flat at 5 percent effective annual yield, what should the
price of Bond A equal? (Note: given all of the data
above, it may not be flat.)

c) If
in one year (i.e., at t = 1), the yield curve is flat at 6% (i.e., the yield to
maturity on zero-coupon bonds of all maturities is 6%), what will be the
holding period yield for Bond B if you bought Bond B at t = 0?
