4 y 1 ) y 1 ( D P P + + - = y 1 D D * + = y D P P * - = Bond prices move inversely with interest rates …. . The price change of a bond is proportional to its duration and not its term to maturity More precisely,  if we denote D = modified duration  Duration/Price Relationship: RSM 330_week 12_Fall2011
5 Over time, there are three determinants of the bond price. P = f(y, cash flow, T) Your holding period return is impacted by a change in interest rates: P + ∆P = f(y + ∆y) and ∆ y ∆ P. Measures of sensitivity to interest rate risk: dP dP 1 dy or dy P For example, suppose that dP/dy = −6000 and dP 1/dy P = −10. Then for a small change ∆y, the price change is roughly ∆P = −6000∆y and the percentage price change is ∆ P/P = −10∆y. RSM 330_week 12_Fall2011
