Question

Using the pure expectations theory of the term structure and the associated equation for the 10 yr GS, explain what forward guidance means and how the use of it is supposed to influence the economy.

Answer #1

Describe the “pure expectations theory” of the term structure of
interest rates

Using the Expectations Theory of the term structure,
calculate the interest rates in the term structure for maturities
of 1 to 5 years for the following paths of one year interest rates
over the next five years. Explain for each what the yield curve
would look like.
3% 4% 5% 6% 7%
3% 2% 1% 1% 2%

If the pure expectations theory of the term structure is
correct, which of the following statements is CORRECT?
A. An upward sloping yield curve would imply that interest rates
are expected to be lower in the future.
B. If a 1-year Treasury bill has a yield to maturity of 7% and a
2-year Treasury bill has a yield to maturity of 8%, this would
imply the market believes that 1-year rates will be 7.5% one year
from now.
C. The...

Consider the following term structure:
Term Yield
1 1.5%
2 2.3%
3 3.5%
4 3.7%
Compute
the implied forward rate on a one-year security 1 year from now and
2 years from now. What is the economic interpretation
of these rates according to the pure expectations theory?
…according to the liquidity preference (modified expectations)
theory? Suppose that you believe that the actual future one-year
rates will be greater than the implied forward rates....

Assume the pure expectations hypothesis (PEH) holds, and
estimate the term structure for the next three years (i.e.
calculate the spot rate for the first year, and the forward rates
for the second, and third years).
Bond
Coupon Rate
Maturity
Market Price
A
3% paid annually
1 year
$998.06
B
4% paid annually
2 years
$1011.49
C
7% paid annually
3 years
$1094.68

Using the expectations hypothesis theory for the term structure
of interest rates, determine the expected return for securities
with maturities of two, three, and four years based on the data. Do
an analysis similar to that in the right-hand portion of Table 6-6.
1-year of T-bill at beginning of year 1.....5% 1-year of T-bill at
beginning of year 2.....8% 2-year of T-bill at beginning of year
3.....7% 3-year of T-bill at beginning of year 4.....10%

Using the expectations hypothesis theory for the term structure
of interest rates, determine the expected return for securities
with maturities of two, three, and four years based on the
following data. (Input your answers as a percent rounded to
2 decimal places.)

Actual interest rates for one and four-year bonds are 5.25% and
5.95% respectively.
Using expectations theory, what is the
expected interest rate for a three-year bond one
year from today?
Please show the equation you are plugging numbers into as well.
I can't figure out how to calculate this without 1R3 or one of the
expected rates being given up front. Help!!
-----------the answer is not 6.18---------

Covered Interest Parity
Show how the equation in covered interest parity is derived.
Explain the theory.
Assume the current $/Euro exchange rate on the $/Euro exchange
rate on the FORWARD market is 1.05 dollars per Euro. If the US
interest rate is 6% and the EU interest rate is 10%, show what the
current $/Euro SPOT market exchange would be under the theory of
covered interest rate parity.

1. Identify the vertex of the quadratic equation y=2x2+8x-10.
