  1. How to calculate the fair value of a bond?

    A bond that is near to the interest payment date (coupon date) would likely be pricier.

    But how much is fair?
    Any formula?

    I work in a financial company and some people sell/buy previously issued government bonds (from Central American countries) before maturity (i.e. secondary market) and they ask me for a opinion on price.

    This bonds are quite safe, in the last 20+ years this governments have never defaulted.

    Thanks a lot for your help

    Why not ask a market maker?
