Reading 16 - Swaps, Forwards and Futures Strategies - Example 5 - German Bunds

The Modified Duration of the CTD Bond is nowhere to be found in the questions and it just randomly showed up under Solution 2 with no formulas or anything that explains where it came from.

Can someone please help?

I’m not quite sure what sort of help you want.

I can confirm that you’re correct: the duration of the CTD does not appear before they give it to you in the answer.

Thanks for your reply. I was under the impression that everything we need for solutions should’ve been provided in the question.

Your impression is correct: it should have been.

Fortunately, the exam is written by people who don’t make such mistakes.
