Since, par value is 1000, we will calculate interest on this as:

Thus, if I buy this bond for $1000, I will receive $7039.989 after 20 yrs.
That also means, if I buyed this bond for suppose $1100, I would still have the value of this bond after 20 yrs as $7039.989.

Now, Opportunity cost if I sell this bond today and get $849.54 and reinvest it on ongoing market interest rate (say 10%), I'll get:
=849.54(1+.1)^20 .... (Considering annual rate to be 10% remaining same for rest of 20 yrs)

Hence, the loss would be: 7039.989-5715.28= $1324.78 :)
This is what I understand, hope every concept related to it is covered.
Let me know if anybody has some different view on this.
