### Forward interest rate curve family parametrization

There are many academic sources, books and articles, introducing forward interest rate curve. For example, those authors define $f(\tau)=f(\tau;\beta_0,\beta_1,\beta_2,\lambda)$ as a function of time ...

### How can a future exhibit both normal backwardation and be in contango?

My understanding is that "contango", when describing the forward curve, describes forward prices that are above the current spot price, i.e. $F_{t+1} > F_{t} > S$. This is directly ...

### What's the difference between short rate and the bootstrapped interest rate?

This thing confused me for a long time, since we can a have a curve (e.g. LIBOR 3M) bootstrapped from the market quotes of instruments (e.g. FRA, SWAP), and we can get the spot rates and also the ...

### forward price and forward rate of a corporate bond

For risk free zero coupon bonds we can derive forward rates from observed the prices of zero coupon bonds. For example if the 1y zero rate is 1% and the 2y zero rate is 2% we can derive that the 1yr ...
