Create ratecurve Object

Create a ratecurve object using ratecurve.

Settle = datetime(2022,3,1);
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;

Create Future Pricer Object

Use finpricer to create a Future pricer object and use the ratecurve object with the DiscountCurve name-value argument.

outPricer = finpricer("Future",DiscountCurve=ZeroCurve,SpotPrice=125)
outPricer = 
  Future with properties:

    DiscountCurve: [1x1 ratecurve]
        SpotPrice: 125

Price BondFuture Instrument

Use price to compute the price and price result for the BondFuture instrument.

Compute Cash Settlement Amount

Use cashsettle with the BondFuture instrument to compute the cash settlement.

SpotPrice = 125; % Clean spot price for $100 face value of underlying bond.
outCS = cashsettle(BondFut,SpotPrice,ZeroCurve)
outCS= 1×1timetable
       Time        CashSettleAmount

This example shows the workflow to price multiple FXFuture instruments and then use cashsettle to compute the cash settlement amount for the FXFuture instruments.

Create ratecurve Objects

Create ratecurve objects using ratecurve for the foreign and domestic zero curves.

% Define Foreign Zero Curve
Settle = datetime(2022, 3, 1);
ForeignZeroTimes = [calmonths(6) calyears([1 2 3 4 5 7 10 20 30])]';
ForeignZeroRates = [0.0031 0.0035 0.0047 0.0058 0.0062 0.0093 0.0128 0.0182 0.0223 0.0285]';
ForeignZeroDates = Settle + ForeignZeroTimes;
ForeignRC = ratecurve('zero', Settle, ForeignZeroDates, ForeignZeroRates);

% Define Domestic Zero Curve
DomesticZeroTimes = [calmonths(6) calyears([1 2 3 4 5 7 10 20 30])]';
DomesticZeroRates = [0.0052 0.0055 0.0061 0.0073 0.0094 0.0119 0.0168 0.0222 0.0293 0.0307]';
DomesticZeroDates = Settle + DomesticZeroTimes;
DomesticRC = ratecurve('zero', Settle, DomesticZeroDates, DomesticZeroRates);

Create FXFuture Instrument Object

Use fininstrument to create a FXFuture instrument object for three FX Future instruments.

FXFut = fininstrument("FXFuture",Maturity=datetime([2022,9,1 ; 2022,10,1 ; 2022,11,1]),QuotedPrice=[0.78 ; 0.82 ; 0.86],ForeignRateCurve=ForeignRC,Notional=200000,Name=["FXfuture_instrument1";"FXfuture_instrument2";"FXfuture_instrument3"])
FXFut=3×1 object
  3x1 FXFuture array with properties:

    Maturity
    QuotedPrice
    ForeignRateCurve
    Notional
    Name

Create Future Pricer Object

Use finpricer to create a Future pricer object and use the ratecurve object with the DiscountCurve name-value argument.

outPricer = finpricer("Future",DiscountCurve=DomesticRC,SpotPrice=0.79)
outPricer = 
  Future with properties:

    DiscountCurve: [1x1 ratecurve]
        SpotPrice: 0.7900

Price FXFuture Instruments

Use price to compute the prices and price results for the FXFuture instrument.

[Price,outPR] = price(outPricer,FXFut)
Price = 3×1
