Compute price for inflation instrument with Inflation pricer



[Price,PriceResult] = price(inpPricer,inpInstrument) computes the instrument price and related pricing information based on the pricing object inpPricer and the instrument object inpInstrument.


[Price,PriceResult] = price(___,inpSensitivity) adds an optional argument to specify sensitivities.

This example shows the workflow to price an InflationBond instrument when you use an inflationcurve object and an Inflation pricing method.

Create ratecurve Object

Create a ratecurve object using ratecurve.

Settle = datetime(2021,1,15);
Type = "zero";
ZeroTimes = [calmonths(6) calyears([1 2 3 4 5 7 10 20 30])]';
ZeroRates = [0.0052 0.0055 0.0061 0.0073 0.0094 0.0119 0.0168 0.0222 0.0293 0.0307]';
ZeroDates = Settle + ZeroTimes;
ZeroCurve = ratecurve('zero',Settle,ZeroDates,ZeroRates)
ZeroCurve = 
  ratecurve with properties:

                 Type: "zero"
          Compounding: -1
                Basis: 0
                Dates: [10x1 datetime]
                Rates: [10x1 double]
               Settle: 15-Jan-2021
         InterpMethod: "linear"
    ShortExtrapMethod: "next"
     LongExtrapMethod: "previous"

Create inflationcurve Object

Create an inflationcurve object using inflationcurve.

BaseDate = datetime(2020,10,1);
InflationTimes = [0 calyears([1 2 3 4 5 7 10 20 30])]';
InflationIndexValues = [100 102 103.5 105 106.8 108.2 111.3 120.1 130.4 150.2]';
InflationDates = BaseDate + InflationTimes;
myInflationCurve = inflationcurve(InflationDates,InflationIndexValues)
myInflationCurve = 
  inflationcurve with properties:

                    Basis: 0
                    Dates: [10x1 datetime]
     InflationIndexValues: [10x1 double]
    ForwardInflationRates: [9x1 double]
              Seasonality: [12x1 double]

Create InflationBond Instrument Object

Use fininstrument to create an InflationBond instrument object.

IssueDate = datetime(2021,1,1);
Maturity = datetime(2026,1,1);
CouponRate = 0.02;

InflationBond = fininstrument("InflationBond",'IssueDate',IssueDate,'Maturity',Maturity,'CouponRate',CouponRate,'Name',"inflation_bond_instrument")
InflationBond = 
  InflationBond with properties:

                  CouponRate: 0.0200
                      Period: 2
                       Basis: 0
                   Principal: 100
    DaycountAdjustedCashFlow: 0
                         Lag: 3
       BusinessDayConvention: "actual"
                    Holidays: NaT
                EndMonthRule: 1
                   IssueDate: 01-Jan-2021
             FirstCouponDate: NaT
              LastCouponDate: NaT
                    Maturity: 01-Jan-2026
                        Name: "inflation_bond_instrument"

Create Inflation Pricer Object

Use finpricer to create an Inflation pricer object and use the ratecurve object with the 'DiscountCurve' name-value pair argument and the inflationcurve object with the 'InflationCurve' name-value pair argument.

outPricer = finpricer("Inflation",'DiscountCurve',ZeroCurve,'InflationCurve',myInflationCurve)
outPricer = 
  Inflation with properties:

     DiscountCurve: [1x1 ratecurve]
    InflationCurve: [1x1 inflationcurve]

Price InflationBond Instrument

Use price to compute the price and sensitivities for the InflationBond instrument.

[Price,outPR] = price(outPricer,InflationBond)
Price = 112.1856
outPR = 
  priceresult with properties:

       Results: [1x1 table]
    PricerData: []



Input Arguments

collapse all

Pricer object, specified as a scalar Inflation pricer object. Use finpricer to create the Inflation pricer object.

Data Types: object

Instrument object, specified as a scalar or vector of InflationBond, YearYearInflationSwap, or ZeroCouponInflationSwap instrument objects. Use fininstrument to create the InflationBond, YearYearInflationSwap, or ZeroCouponInflationSwap instrument objects.

Data Types: object

(Optional) List of sensitivities to compute, specified as an NOUT-by-1 or 1-by-NOUT cell array of character vectors or string array with possible values of 'Price' and 'All'.

inpSensitivity = {'All'} or inpSensitivity = ["All"] specifies that the output is 'Price'. This option is the same as specifying inpSensitivity to include each sensitivity.

Example: inpSensitivity = {'price'}

Data Types: string | cell

Output Arguments

collapse all

Instrument price, returned as a numeric.

Price result, returned as an object. The object has the following fields:

  • PriceResult.Results — Table of results

  • PriceResult.PricerData — Structure for pricer data
