1. Bond and Yield curve
Each group should collect daily information on bonds issued by the Government of Canada from a source such as database Datastream, center for research in security prices, newspaper for two weeks. Calculate the yield curve for each day using bootstrap method. The yield curves should present for the next 20 years, using at least 5 bonds. If necessary, you can also round the day counting to nearest month.

Plot the call and put options prices against the number of sample paths. Now, determine the values of the call and put options applying the Black-Scholes model. Compare and explain the results you obtained.
