Abstract

We derive a closed-form formula for computing bond prices between coupon payments. Our results cover both the `Treasury' and the `Street' pricing methods used by sovereign and corporate issuers. We apply our formulas to two UK gilts, the 8% Treasury Gilt 2015, and the 0.5% Treasury Gilt 2022, and show that we can obtain the dirty price of these bonds at any date with a minimum of calculations, and without intensive computational resources.
