6-1 Chapter 6 The Risk of Changing Interest Rates
6-2 Short Horizon Investors n Maturity Time P 1, the price at Time 1, is important. P0P0 P1P1 y0y0 y1y1 10
6-3 Long Horizon Investors P0P0 CC + PAR Maturity Time Reinvest Value at some distant date n is important. 102 C n
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
6-12 Macaulay’s Duration for Special Types of Bonds Bond Price Volatilities for Special Types of Bonds Type of bondDuration Zero-coupon n Par Perpetual(1 + y)/y
