Example text

5 exceeds the spot rate to time t. 5 is less than the spot rate to time t. Proof: Reverse the inequalities in the proof of proposition 1. CHAPTER 3 Yield-to-Maturity hapters 1 and 2 showed that the time value of money can be described by discount factors, spot rates, or forward rates. Furthermore, these chapters showed that each cash flow of a fixed income security must be discounted at the factor or rate appropriate for the term of that cash flow. In practice, investors and traders find it useful to refer to a bond’s yield-to-maturity, or yield, the single rate that when used to discount a bond’s cash flows produces the bond’s market price.

Intuitively, if it is appropriate to discount all of a bond’s cash flows at the rate y, then a bond paying a coupon rate of c is paying the market rate of interest. Investors will not demand to receive more than their initial investment at maturity nor will they accept less than their initial investment at maturity. Hence, the bond will sell for its face value. Second, when c>100y and F=100, P>100. If the coupon rate exceeds the yield, then the bond sells at a premium to par, that is, for more than face value.

The answer is that the one-year zero earns a different rate because the investor and the issuer of the bond have committed to roll over the principal balance at the end of six months for another six months. This type of commitment is an example of a forward loan. More generally, a forward loan is an agreement made to lend money at some future date. The rate of interest on a forward loan, specified at the time of the agreement as opposed to the time of the loan, is called a forward rate. An investor in a one-year zero can be said to have simultaneously made a spot loan for six months and a loan, six months forward, with a term of six months.
