Coupon Rate: interest rate on a bond instrument used to calculate the annual cash flows the bond issuer promised to pay the bond holder. Required Rate of Return: interest rate an investor should receive on a security given its risk. Required rate of return is used to calculate the fair present value on a security. Expected Rate of Return: interest rate an investor would receive on a security if he or she buys the security at its current market price, receives all expected payments, and sells the security at the end of his or her investment horizon. Realized Rate of Return: actual interest rate earned on an investment in a financial security. Realized rate of return is a historical (ex post) measure of the interest rate. Duration: 1.average life of bond 2. Time it takes to recoup investment 3. Sensitivity or elasticity to IR change 3 things impact duration: 1. Coupon of interest (/\ coupon, \/ duration) 2. YTM [ir] (/\ IR,\/PV,\/DUR) 3. Maturity (longer mat , longer duration) Annual : ∆P/P= -D[ ∆R/ 1+R] Semi Annual = -D[∆R/1+(R/2)] /\ IR \/P (neg answer) \/IR /\ P pos answer

Quantity of loanable funds supplied increases as interest rates rise
Unbiased expectation theory: at a given point in time the yield curve reflects the markets current expectations of future short term rates ; intuition behind theory is that if investors have a 4 yr investment horizon they could either buy a current 4 yr bond and earn the current or spot yield on a 4 yr bond (iR 4, if held to maturity) each year of could invest in 4 successive one year bonds of which the only know the current one year spot rate buy form expectation of the unknown future one-yr rates[E(2r1), E(3r1), and E(4r1)] |note: ex 1R4 :1 indicated the period bought in , 4 indicates the purchase of a security with a 4 year life E(3r1): expected return on a security with a one-year life purchased in period 3|| In equilibrium, the return to hold a 4 yr bond to maturity should equal the expected return to investing in 4 successive 1 yr bonds. If this equality does not hold a arbitrage opportunity exists. || if future one year rates are expected to rise each successive year into the future then the yield curve will slope upwards || if future 1 yr rates are expected to remain constant each successive year into the future then the 4 yr bond rate will be equal to the 3 yr bond rate -- that is the term structure of interest rates will remain constants over the relevant time period. Specifically, the unbiased expectation theory posits that current long-term interest rates (1RN) are geometric averages of current (1R1) and expected future E(Nr1) short term interest rates: (1+1RN)N=(1+1R1)(1+E(2r1))…(1+E(Nr1)) Therefore: 1/N 1RN=[(1+1R1)(1+E(Nr1))…(1+E(2r1)) -1 1RN = actual N-period rate today N + term to maturity 1R1= actual current 1 year rate today R(ir1) = expected one yr rates for years i=1,2,3,4… Upper case = actual interest rate ;lower = estimates

Liquidity premium theory: investors will hold long term maturities only if they are offered at a premium to compensate for future uncertainty in a securities value, which increases with an assets maturity
