# Question

For years 2–5, compute the following:
a. The forward interest rate, rf , for a forward rate agreement that settles at the time borrowing is repaid. That is, if you borrow at t − 1 at the 1-year rate ˜r, and repay the loan at t , the contract payoff in year t is (˜r − rf )
b. The forward interest rate, re, for a Eurodollar-style forward rate agreement that settles at the time borrowing is initiated. That is, if you borrow at t – 1 at the 1-year rate ˜r, and repay the loan at t , the contract payoff in year
t − 1 is (˜r − re)
c. How is the difference between rf and re affected by volatility (you can compare the two trees) and time to maturity?
