Consider the same short-term interest rates as in problem 4 above. If the yield on a discount bond that matures in four years is 6.4%, then according to liquidity premium theory, the premium attached to the 4 year discount bond is

Answer #1

1.

Yield on a discount bond with a three year maturity = (5.5% + 4% +
1.1%) / 3

= 10.6% / 3

= **3.53%**

Yield on bond with a four year maturity = (5.5% + 4% + 1.1% +
10) / 4

= 20.6% / 4

= **5.15%**

**According to expectations theory, the yield on a discount
bond with a three year maturity will be 3.53% and yield on bond
with a four year maturity will be 5.15%.**

2.

Yield on a discount bond with a three year maturity = ((5.5% + 4% +
1.1% + 10) / 4) + Premium

6.4% = 5.15% + Premium

Premium = 6.4% - 5.15%

**Premium = 1.25%**

Consider the same short-term interest rates as in problem 4
above. If the yield on a discount bond that matures in 4 years is
8.25%, then according to liquidity premium theory, the premium
attached to the 4 year discount bond is?

(b) (i) Short term (one year) interest rates over the next 6
years will be 0.5%, 0.6%, 0.7%,
0.76%, 0.80% and 0.84%. Using the expectation theory, what will be
the interest rates
on a three-year bond? [2 marks]
(ii) Predict the one-year interest rate three years from today
if interest rates are 4%,
4.5%, 4.75% and 5% for bonds with one to four years to maturity and
respectively
liquidity premiums are 0%, 0.1% , 0.15% and 0.2%. [3 marks]

If the expected path of one-year interest rates over the next
four years is 5 percent, 4 percent, 3 percent, and 2 percent. Draw
the yield curve under the expectations theory. Now, assume
liquidity premium are 0.25 for 2 year, 0.5 for 3 year and 0.75 for
4 year bonds, draw on the same graph (ideally in different color)
the yield curve under the liquidity premium theory.

According to the liquidity premium theory of the term structure
of interest rates, if the one-year bond rate is expected to be
3%, 6%, and 9% over each of the next three years, and if the
liquidity premium on a three-year bond is 3%, then the interest
rate on a three-year bond is _?

If the expected path of 1-year interest rates over the
next five years is 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, and 5%, the expectations theory
predicts which maturity of bond with the highest interest rate
today? Assume that liquidity premium for the bonds of 1 to 5 years
to maturity is 0%, 0.1%, 0.13% 0.2%, and 0.3% respectively,
calculate YTM of 1 to 5 year bonds.

4. Assume that short-term rate, r1 = 6%, and that the
expected market rates,
E(r 12 ) = 7 % and E(r 23 ) = 9 % . Also assume that the
unbiased expectations theory holds such that the forward rates are
identical to expected spot rates.
a. What should be the current price of a 3-year, $1000 bond
with a 12% coupon rate? Assume annual coupon payments.
b. What is the yield-to-maturity for this bond?

The one year interest rates in the future 5 years starting from
2020 are respectively, 1%, 2%, 3%, 4% and 5%. Estimate the interest
rates of the following bonds issued in 2020 using the expectations
theory.
a. Two year bond
b. Three year bond
c. Four year bond
d. Five year bond
2. Draw a yield curve using above data.
3. What will happen to the yield curve if you incorporate
liquidity premium theory to make estimates of future interest...

The table below shows current and expected future one-year
interest rates. Year One-Year Bond Rate 1= 3% 2= 4% 3.=5% 4.= 8% A.
Assuming that the expectations theory is the correct theory of the
term structure, calculate the current interest rate for a four-year
bond (predicted by that theory). Show your work and include a

1) If the expected path of one-year interest rates over the next
five years is 1.5%, 2%, 2.5%, 3%, and 3.5%, then the pure
expectations theory predicts that today's interest rate on the
five-year bond is (approximately):
2.35%
2.94%
2.50%
3.25%
None of the above.
2) U.S. government notes mature in 5 years, have a par value of
$1,000, and have an annual coupon rate of 3.5% (paid on a
semi-annual basis). The current market interest rate for...

2. 2 years ago, you paid $1069 for a $1,000 par bond that has a
7% coupon with semiannual payments. You are selling it today for
$1000. You reinvested coupons at the 2.2% annual rate. What is your
