6-4 Bond Price Interest Rates

6-5 Bond Price Interest Rates Actual Price Change P0P0 P1P1 y1y1 y0y0

6-6 =derivative of bond price as yield to maturity changes =slope of tangent of price curve

6-7 Duration as an Approximation of Price Change Price Interest rate Slope of tangent equals numerator of duration Actual price change equals P 0  P 1 Duration approximation of price change equals P 0  P´ 1 Price Tangent P0P0 P1P1 P´1P´1 y0y0 y1y1

6-8 Move along tangent to approximate price change. From calculus Divide both sides by price =a measure of sensitivity of bond prices to changes in yields =a measure of risk

6-9 Percent Price  [Duration][Yield Change]. Change is called “modified” duration.

6-10 Macaulay’s Duration (DUR) Often used by short horizon investors as a measure of price sensitivity. DUR= % change in price as yield changes DUR =. -[d P /d y ](1 + y) Price

6-11 This expression may be interpreted as the weighted average maturity of a bond. DUR =. 1c/(1 + y) 1 + 2c/(1 + y) 2 + … + n(c + PAR)/(1 + y) n Price
