Question

What is yield to maturity of $1000 face-value 8% coupon bond with a selling price of $1010 that has 1 year left to maturity? Assuming no inflation, under what conditions will this coupon bond have a negative yield (think about its selling price)? What about any coupon bond with any maturity?

Answer #1

**Calculation of
YTM:**

This is done through Excel as below:

The increase in maturity increases YTM and recovers its higher price. The stretch on maturity helps to get higher YTM in future.
