Trade separately from the bond. Can be considered as a zero-coupon bond itself. 3 Bond Basics (cont’d) Notation r t (t 1 ,t 2 ): interest rate from time t 1 to t 2 prevailing at time t P t 0 (t 1 ,t 2 ): price of a bond quoted at t = t to be purchased at t 1 maturing at t 2 When t = t 1 , the subscript can be dropped. Zero Coupon Yield to maturity: percentage increase in dollars earned from the zero coupon bond (Internal Rate of Return). YTM is different from coupon rate. 4 Bond Basics (cont’d) Zero-coupon bonds make a single payment at maturity 5 Bond Basics (cont’d) r (0,t): annual effective return One year zero-coupon bond: P(0,1) = 0.943396 Pay \$0.943396 today to receive \$1 at t=1 Yield to maturity (YTM) = 1/0.943396 – 1 = 0.06 r (0,1) = 6% Two year zero-coupon bond: P(0,2) = 0.881659 YTM = 1/0.881659 – 1 = 0.134225 = (1 + r (0,2)) 2 – 1 r (0,2) = 0.065 = 6.5% 6 Bond Basics (cont’d) Zero-coupon bond price that pays Ct at t: Zero Coupon Yield curve : graph of annualized zero coupon bond yields against time Implied forward rates Suppose current one-year rate r (0,1) and two-year rate r (0,2) Current forward rate from year 1 to year 2, r (1,2), must satisfy 7 P t C r t t t ( , ) [ ( , )] 1 [1 r (0,1)][1 r (1,2)] [1 r (0,2)] 2 Bond Basics: Implied Forward Rates 8 Figure 7.1 An investor investing for 2 years has a choice of (1) buying a 2-year zero-coupon bond paying [1+ r (0, 2)] 2 or (2) buying a 1-year bond paying 1+ r (0, 1) for 1 year, and reinvesting the proceeds at the implied forward rate, r (1, 2) between years 1 and 2. The implied forward rate makes the investor indifferent between these alternatives. Bond Basics: Implied Forward Rates In general: Example 7.1: What are the implied forward rate r (2,3) and forward zero- coupon bond price P (2,3) from year 2 to year 3?
