Abstract

In this article we discuss the fundamentals of pricing of the popular financial instruments. The basic point of our approach is to extend the present value benchmark concept. The present value valuation approach plays the similar role as The Newton Laws in the Classic Mechanics. Thus our primary goal is to present a new outlook on valuation of the debt securities and its derivatives. We also, demonstrate why the present value is not a complete method of pricing either securities or derivatives. Then, as illustration we present a valuation of the floating rate, callable and convertible bonds. Next we discuss major drawbacks of the risk neutral interpretation of the derivatives pricing. At the end of the article we discuss interest rate swap and derivative valuation of some classes of the fixed income securities.
