The question that you didn’t get which I need to rephrase (my bad!) is answered by the above. i.e. (hopefully I’m going to get this right now!):
conversion price = strike = outlined in bond indenture and what you use to get the conversion ratio and market conversion price etc. This is the ‘strike’ because it…Read more
]]>Q14 at the end of Reading 43 in the curriculum – the answer adds on bid-offer spread in the calculation of the total holding period cost, even though you already have the round-trip trading commission given and could just do AMC + round-trip % = total holding period cost, according to the formula given earlier in the curriculum.

I just want to double check that if you are given a table of squared residuals and asked to check if ARCH is present, you should only look at the p-Value for the slope, not the intercept to see if there is significance?
