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.
Code or source file, detailed explanation, and calculation for the construction of, at least, ONE yield curve have to be presented in the report in order to get full marks. The behavior of each curve should be explained clearly.
Similarly, you pick a company and its published bond information to calculate the yield curve for that company. Follow the same procedure as you did for the Government of Canada bond.

2. Portfolio
Collect daily share price data for four companies for a year and calculate daily return. Present the daily return data using a distribution. Assume market is determined by S&P 500. Calculate  of each company using different methods that you learnt in this course, and discuss about the values that you obtained for . Establish the efficient frontier for the portfolio of the four companies and determine the efficient portfolio.

3. Fitting geometric Brownian motion and mean-reverting process
Each group need to collect daily foreign exchange rates between Canada and another country (each group should have different exchange rates) for at least 2 years. Fit the exchange data into geometric Brownian motion and mean-reverting processes. Justify the results you obtained.
Code or source file, detailed explanation, and calculation for the processes should be provided.

4. Option pricing
Collect daily price of a stock for year 2019 and fit the data into a geometric Brownian motion (GMB). Then, using Mote Carlo simulation for 1000 sample paths, calculate at the money European call and put options. Repeat the process with 2000, 4000, 6000, 8000, 10000, and 12,000 sample paths. 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.
