Coupon Rate = 5%

Coupon dates (Annual)

If interest rates change from 3.28% to 6.39% immediately after you buy the bond today (and stay at the new interest rate), what is the price effect in year 4 ? State your answer to the nearest penny (e.g., 48.45) If there is a loss, state your answer with a negative sign (e.g., -52.30)
