Reading 57: Mortgage Backed Securities Page 57 Problem 6 How does the author derive the CPR figure from the PSA? Thanks.

Figured it out. CPR = (Month * .2%) to a max of 6% * (PSA/100)

easier way than remembering that formula: 2% per month, for say 12 months= 2.4%, and say we are using 150 PSA, then just 2.4*1.5= 3.6%

^ if thats how you guys do math up in Boston I am going to your local bank to get a loan at 2% per month and end up paying 2.4% a year lol, fag

three general formulas used for CPR CPR = 6% x n/30 x (PSA/100) n = number of months left to maturity CPR = 1 - (1 - SMM) power 12 SMM = Prep / (outstanding balance + interest - payment ) correct me if im wrong thanks

^ SMM = Prep / (outstanding balance + interest - payment ) well, given that prepayments= (outstanding balance-scheduled payments)*SMM i am pretty sure the interest is not involved here and the formula would rearrange to SMM=pre/(outstanding-schedualed)

gulf is right gulf is right gulf is right

^Officer on deck

lol ya i kept it in regular percentages to avoid confusionâ€¦you will still get the right answer. Or you could just do it the correct way. Easier to remember though. gulfcfa Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > ^ if thats how you guys do math up in Boston I am > going to your local bank to get a loan at 2% per > month and end up paying 2.4% a year > > lol, fag

Scheduled Principal = Mortgage payment - Interest So itâ€™s the same formula i wrote above.

Let me draw your attention on this point: Beware when the pool of loans is seasoned so as to adjust the PSA calculation.

sure bilal, i thought by payment you ment schedualed principle payment no mistake on your side, just a wrrong assumption on mine

gulfcfa, are you from the gcc region?
