### Description

Calculates Discount Margin of a Floating-Rate Note (FRN).

### Usage

discMarginFRN(index, estRtrn, mvFRN, priceFRN, maturityYears, periodicity)


### Arguments

 index A number. estRtrn A number. mvFRN A number. priceFRN A number. maturityYears A number. periodicity A number.

### Details

According to information provided by Adams and Smith (2019), the method discMarginFRN() is developed to compute Discount Margin of a Floating-Rate Note (FRN) for the values passed to its six arguments. Here, index is reference rate, stated as an annual percentage rate,estRtrn is a vector of estimated returns on FRN (this does not include repayment of the principal), mvFRN represents Maturity Value, priceFRN price of FRN, maturityYears is number of years to Maturity, and periodicity is periodicity of interest payments. The given examples show various ways in which the arguments can be passed to discMarginFRN().

### Value
