Create CDSBlack model object for CDSOption instrument

Description

Create and price a CDSOption instrument object with a CDSBlack model using this workflow:

  1. Use fininstrument to create a CDSOption instrument object.

  2. Use finmodel to specify a CDSBlack model object for the CDSOption instrument object.

  3. Use finpricer to specify a CDSBlack pricing method for the CDSOption instrument object.

For more information on this workflow, see Get Started with Workflows Using Object-Based Framework for Pricing Financial Instruments.

For more information on the available pricing methods for a CDSOption instrument, see Choose Instruments, Models, and Pricers.

Creation

Description

example

CDSBlackModelObj = finmodel(ModelType,'SpreadVolatility',spreadvolatility_value) creates a CDSBlack model object by specifying ModelType and the required name-value pair argument SpreadVolatility to set the properties using name-value pair arguments. For example, CDSBlackModelObj = finmodel("CDSBlack",'SpreadVolatility',0.052) creates a CDSBlack model object.

Input Arguments

expand all

Model type, specified as a string with the value of "CDSBlack" or a character vector with the value of 'CDSBlack'.

Data Types: char | string

CDSBlack Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify required comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside quotes. You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

Example: CDSBlackModelObj = finmodel("CDSBlack",'SpreadVolatility',0.052)

Spread volatility value, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'SpreadVolatility' and a scalar nonnegative numeric.

Data Types: double

Properties

expand all

Spread volatility value, returned as a scalar nonnegative numeric.

Data Types: double

This example shows the workflow to price a CDSOption instrument when you use a CDSBlack model and a CDSBlack pricing method.

Create CDS Instrument Object

Use fininstrument to create a CDS instrument object as the underlying instrument.

CDS = fininstrument("CDS",'Maturity',datetime(2021,9,15),'ContractSpread',150,'Notional',100,'Name',"CDS_instrument")
CDS = 
  CDS with properties:

           ContractSpread: 150
                 Maturity: 15-Sep-2021
                   Period: 4
                    Basis: 2
             RecoveryRate: 0.4000
    BusinessDayConvention: "actual"
                 Holidays: NaT
        PayAccruedPremium: 1
                 Notional: 100
                     Name: "CDS_instrument"

Create defprobcurve Object

Create a defprobcurve object using defprobcurve.

Settle = datetime(2020,9,20);
DefProbTimes = [calmonths(6) calyears([1 2 3 4 5 7 10 20 30])];
DefaultProbabilities = [0.005 0.007 0.01 0.015 0.026 0.04 0.077 0.093 0.15 0.20]';
ProbDates = Settle + DefProbTimes;
DefaultProbCurve = defprobcurve(Settle,ProbDates,DefaultProbabilities,'Basis',5)
DefaultProbCurve = 
  defprobcurve with properties:

                  Settle: 20-Sep-2020
                   Basis: 5
                   Dates: [10x1 datetime]
    DefaultProbabilities: [10x1 double]

Create ratecurve Object

Create a ratecurve object using ratecurve.

Settle = datetime(2020,9,15);
Type = 'zero';
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;
myRC = ratecurve('zero',Settle,ZeroDates,ZeroRates)
myRC = 
  ratecurve with properties:

                 Type: "zero"
          Compounding: -1
                Basis: 0
                Dates: [10x1 datetime]
                Rates: [10x1 double]
               Settle: 15-Sep-2020
         InterpMethod: "linear"
    ShortExtrapMethod: "next"
     LongExtrapMethod: "previous"

Create CDSOption Instrument Object

Use fininstrument to create a CDSOption instrument object.

CDSOptionInst = fininstrument("CDSOption",'ExerciseDate',datetime(2021,8,15),'Strike',20,'CDS',CDS,'OptionType',"put",'Name',"CDSOption_option")
CDSOptionInst = 
  CDSOption with properties:

               OptionType: "put"
                   Strike: 20
                 Knockout: 0
    AdjustedForwardSpread: NaN
             ExerciseDate: 15-Aug-2021
                      CDS: [1x1 fininstrument.CDS]
                     Name: "CDSOption_option"

Create CDSBlack Model Object

Use finmodel to create a CDSBlack model object.

CDSBlackModel = finmodel("CDSBlack",'SpreadVolatility',.2)
CDSBlackModel = 
  CDSBlack with properties:

    SpreadVolatility: 0.2000

Create CDSBlack Pricer Object

Use finpricer to create a CDSBlack pricer object and use the ratecurve object for the 'DiscountCurve' name-value pair argument.

outPricer = finpricer("analytic",'Model',CDSBlackModel,'DefaultProbabilityCurve',DefaultProbCurve,'DiscountCurve',myRC)
outPricer = 
  CDSBlack with properties:

                      Model: [1x1 finmodel.CDSBlack]
              DiscountCurve: [1x1 ratecurve]
    DefaultProbabilityCurve: [1x1 defprobcurve]

Price CDSOption Instrument

Use price to compute the price for the CDSOption instrument.

Price = price(outPricer,CDSOptionInst)
Price = 3.3016e-04
