Estimate term structure of discount factors, spot rates and forward rates by using data on five semi-annual coupon paying bonds with $100 face value each. The bonds, respectively, have 1.25, 5.35, 10.

Estimate term structure of discount factors, spot rates and forward rates by using data on five semi-annual coupon paying bonds with $100 face value each. The bonds, respectively, have 1.25, 5.35, 10.4, 15.15, and 20.2 years to maturity; pay coupon at annual rates of 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 percent of face value; and are trading at quoted spot market prices in dollars of 105, 106, 107, 108, and 109. Specify the discount factor function d(t) by a third degree polynomial with unknown parameters a, b, and c.  Using estimated d(t) function, determine spot rate and forward rate functions by assuming half-year compounding. Then write the values of the following based on your estimation.

1. Coefficient of parameters a, b and c in first bond price equation
