Compute spread over yield curve for cash flow

## Description

example

example

Spread = cfspread(___,Name,Value) specifies options using one or more name-value pair arguments in addition to the input arguments in the previous syntax.

## Examples

Use cfspread to compute the spread over a yield curve for a cash flow.

Define data for the yield curve.

Settle = datetime(2003,7,1) %datenum('01-Jul-2003');
Settle = datetime
01-Jul-2003

CurveDates = daysadd(Settle,360*[.25 .5 1 2 3 5 7 10 20],1);
ZeroRates = [.0089 .0096 .0107 .0130 .0166 .0248 .0306 .0356 .0454]';

Compute the RateSpec.

RateSpec = intenvset('StartDates', Settle, 'EndDates', CurveDates,...
'Rates', ZeroRates)
RateSpec = struct with fields:
FinObj: 'RateSpec'
Compounding: 2
Disc: [9x1 double]
Rates: [9x1 double]
EndTimes: [9x1 double]
StartTimes: [9x1 double]
EndDates: [9x1 double]
StartDates: 731763
ValuationDate: 731763
Basis: 0
EndMonthRule: 1

Price = 98;
CFAmounts = [30;40;30];
CFDates = [datetime(2004,7,15); datetime(2005,7,15) ; datetime(2006,7,15)];

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Interest-rate specification for initial risk-free rate curve, specified by the RateSpec obtained from intenvset (Financial Instruments Toolbox). For information on the interest-rate specification, see intenvset (Financial Instruments Toolbox).

Data Types: struct

Price of cash flows, specified as an NINST-by-1 vector.

Data Types: double

Cash flow amounts, specified as an NINST-by-MOSTCFS matrix . Each row is a list of cash flow values for one instrument. If an instrument has fewer than MOSTCFS cash flows, the end of the row is padded with NaNs.

Data Types: double

Cash flow dates, specified as an NINST-by-MOSTCFS matrix using a datetime array, string array, or date character vectors. Each entry contains the date of the corresponding cash flow in CFlowAmounts.

To support existing code, cfspread also accepts serial date numbers as inputs, but they are not recommended.

Data Types: char | string | datetime

Settlement date, specified as an NINST-by-1 vector using a datetime array, string array, or date character vectors. The Settle date is the date on which the cash flows are priced.

To support existing code, cfspread also accepts serial date numbers as inputs, but they are not recommended.

Data Types: char | string | datetime

### Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional pairs of arguments as Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN, where Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the pairs does not matter.

Before R2021a, use commas to separate each name and value, and enclose Name in quotes.

Note

An optional input of size NINST-by-1 is also acceptable as a single value applicable to all contracts. Single values are internally expanded to an array of size NINST-by-1.

Day-count basis, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'Basis' and a positive integer using a NINST-by-1 vector.

• 0 = actual/actual

• 1 = 30/360 (SIA)

• 2 = actual/360

• 3 = actual/365

• 4 = 30/360 (PSA)

• 5 = 30/360 (ISDA)

• 6 = 30/360 (European)

• 7 = actual/365 (Japanese)

• 8 = actual/actual (ICMA)

• 9 = actual/360 (ICMA)

• 10 = actual/365 (ICMA)

• 11 = 30/360E (ICMA)

• 12 = actual/365 (ISDA)

• 13 = BUS/252

Data Types: double

## Output Arguments
