Calculate the effective duration of a bond to a 100 basis point change in interest rates with a 6-1/4 coupon,
10-years remaining to maturity, and an asking quote of 110.7811 (decimal, not 32nds).
Face Value of bond=100
Price of bond Po=110.7811
Coupon rate 6.25% of face value=6.25
Time to maturity=10 years
Let us calculate YTM of a bond using IRR function in MS Excel
Year End Cash flow
0 -110.7811 (Price of bond)
1 6.25 Coupon payment
2 6.25 Coupon payment
3 6.25 Coupon payment
4 6.25 ...
Solution describes the steps for calculating effective bond duration, effective convexity and total percentage price change.
