About Interest Rates Why does interest rate risk matters? 3
The Level and Movement of Interest Rates Interest rate can be considered as the price of money. It is the price to exchange money today for money in the future. Like other prices, they are set in equilibrium by the demand and supply of money at a given time. At any point of time, interest rates on debt instruments of different maturities (terms) are different. The relation between terms of the debt instruments (of identical default risk) and their market rates of interest is known as the term structure of interest rates . To display the term structure of interest rates, economists use a diagram called yield curve . 4 Interest Rate Movement

The Level and Movement of Interest Rates Central bank’s monetary policy strategy most directly underlies the level and movement of interest rates. Central banks typically target at short-term rates, the changes of which usually feed through to the whole term structure of interest rates. The increased financial market integration increases the speed with which interest rate changes and associated volatility are transmitted among countries. Assumptions we make in most of our discussions: a flat yield curve - constant interest rate for all maturities at a given point of time. a parallel shift in yield curves – the same change in interest rates for all maturities across time. 7 Interest Rate Movement

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
