Today's Daily Questions

David writes totally fresh, totally original practice (quiz) questions every week: a fresh set of three (4) from Mon to Thursday = 12 new practice questions per week. A few hungry customers like to follow along, so we post them here.

Paid members please note: you do not need to collect practice questions one at a time! After a chapter (or section of related chapters) is finished, Nicole collects them into a single PDF file and uploads to the Study Planner. Most paid members will want to go straight to the study planner (unless you want to discuss/etc in the forum). Thank you!

    P2.T6.710. Merton, survival time, and z-spread

    Hi @David Harper CFA FRM Out of interest. How would you price a credit risky bond? So given that a bond has a credit curve (CDS) (flat or otherwise), a recovery assumption and there exists a zero curve off which to price from. What is interesting is that a z-spread is a flat rate added over a zero curve to get a model price of a bond to its market price. But when you use a credit curve, you...
