Ok, David, thank you for your help, then I don`t quite understand answer c "A negative key rate exposure must be the result of a short position and cannot be the result of a long position". As far as I understand Key Rate 01 is a measure similar to DV 01 and indicates whether prices inhance or...
Good day everybody, as far as I understand the answers are as follows (please correct me if it`s not cumbersome in case of an error):
319.1 d
319.2 d
319.3 d
If I am not mistaken the answers are as follows (I am almost sure about first two and not quite sure about last one):
309.1 c
309.2 b
309.3 c
But I`ve got a question: Malz tells us that as the number of positions increases the number of defaults also increases, but I don`t understand how he...
Thank you very much David for virtually chewing it over! Now I understand that key rate shifts are of course multifactor due to adverse changes and to the effect of one key rate affecting the others that are for longer maturities. But what I still don`t understand is how it can be the KR01 are...
Well - I do think that it is the portion of the spread premium that the protection buyer must pay to the protection seller in case of default happens somewhere between the quarterly payments and in order to approximate this amount we put 1/2 in front of this term.
But I have another small...
Good afternoon - please could you be so kind to prompt me - it is FRM Part 1 program or FRM Part 2? Cause I don`t quite remember anything like this from FRM Part 1 program topics? Thank you beforehand for your answer...
Regards
Yes of course I understand that, I`m not yet paid for the service because I haven`t yet registered for the FRM - so it just a matter of time... Thanks anyway:) I fully understand that it`s hard to write these questions and then to check everything...
The answers are (if I am right?):
306.1 c
306.2 c
306.3 a
By the way could you be so kind to explain why the spread '01 (DVCS) is generally a decreasing function of the z-spread level?
Is it due to convexity? The larger the z-spread - the lower the price of the bond compared to the initial...
Hi Suzanne - could you please be so kind to post answers and formula to solve these two last questions 303.2 and 303.3. Of course - if it is not prohibited. Thank you very much beforehand! I was trying to solve these two and used integral but unavailingly...
Thank you very much for your help! I plan to register for the November 2013 FRM Part 1 exam and now I`m trying not only to repeat and revise but to read as much relevant literature as I can. Exam is very vast and the main problem is - the boundaries of the FRM program are very vague and obscure...
Dear Fran, Could you be so kind to narrate how to solve the first question 307.1. I got an answer c. $9,754 but I`m dubious that it`s the right one. Can you please depict the formula also. Thanks beforehand...
Yes, exactly. I understand what Vikas is talking about. On the latest Nov 2012 FRM exam there were questions that dazed me a lot like for instance: please specify if the 3 month forward curve looks like this, and spot curve looks like this (first ascending, then slightly descending) how then...
