Federal Home Loan Banks also hold reserves, but are not eligible to earn IOER, so they lend the cash into the fed funds market at a rate below IOER. U.S. branches of foreign banks, who are eligible to earn IOER, borrow from the FHLBs and deposit the proceeds in their accounts at the Fed, earning the spread. U.S. banks don't participate in this arbitrage ...

No, I don't think the raw solution you sketch is going to work. First and foremost, by extracting the cash flows from the bond you're discarding the dynamics of their rate under the Hull/White model you're using. You should both forecast and discount them on the tree; the way to do it correctly is implemented, e.g., in the DiscretizedSwap class (and ...

For portfolios comprised of instruments in the U.S., Britain or other countries with fairly low credit risk to the government, this is traditionally done by trading various maturities of treasury bonds. A simple technique is to divide your portfolio instruments into "buckets" of duration, say 0-2, 2-5, 5-10, and 10+ years. Then, you sum up the exposure in ...

Not sure this is a quantitative finance question, since it's more or less a judgment call. There is no futures contract that you can use to make this estimation; instead, it requires an understanding of the Fed, what's going on in the economy, what's priced in by the market, what's the positioning profile of different players, etc. Assuming the Fed hiked, ...

The parity in this picture is given as the percentage of the face value. The stock price is given in HUF. I checked the stock price, It reached 16600 in september 2013. The EURHUF that time was something like 299, but we should now the exact time this picture was taken. So we have everything to calculate the parity: \$\text{Parity} = \text{Conv Ratio} \cdot ...

That company is probably traded on the Hungarian stock exchange in Hungarian forint. You would have to multiply the stock price by the euro/forint rate to find parity. Note that in this case, the bond has a huge coupon (Euribor+5.5%) after the "call date", effectively forcing the call and making the bond a 4% maturing in 2016. There's no real point to ...

One thing you could do is look at the fed funds futures curve and look at what maturity has a 25bps hike priced in as a certainty. Then you could look at the 10y future that corresponds to that maturity date and present value it. The difference between that calculated value and the prompt future could be a decent theoretical estimate. I agree with haginile ...

Don't be afraid to use one row in your spreadsheet for each day. Enter the date in column A, then increment the date by 1 day for each row until you reach the end of 10 years. In column B enter the formula "=YEAR(A1)" A1 being the cell with the date in it. Then calculate your principal and interest amounts based on the interest rate divided by the total ...
