Question

Based on economists’ forecasts and analysis, one-year T-bill rates and liquidity premiums for the next four years are expected to be as follows: 1R1 = .50% E(2r1) = .75% L2 = 0.07% E(3r1) = .85% L3 = 0.16% E(4r1) = 1.15% L4 = 0.17% Identify the four annual rates. (Round your answers to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16)) Annual Rates Year 1 .5 % Year 2 % Year 3 % Year 4 %

Answer #1

Annual Rate = [(1 + r_{1})x(1 + r_{2})x....x(1 +
r_{n})]^{1/n} - 1

Year 1 = [1.005) - 1 = 0.50%

Year 2 = [(1.0050)(1.0075 + 0.0007)]^{1/2} -1 =
[(1.0050)(1.0082)]^{1/2} -1 = 1.0066 - 1 = 0.0066, or
0.66%

Year 3 = [(1.0050)(1.0075 + 0.0007)(1.0085 +
0.0016)]^{1/3} -1 =
[(1.0050)(1.0082)(1.0101)]^{1/3} -1

= 1.0079 - 1 = 0.0079, or 0.79%

Year 4 = [(1.0050)(1.0075 + 0.0007)(1.0085 + 0.0016)(1.0115 +
0.0017)]^{1/4} -1

= [(1.0050)(1.0082)(1.0101)(1.0132)]^{1/4} -1 = 1.0091 -
1 = 0.0091, or 0.91%

Your client also wants to determine the Liquidity of his
investment by using Liquidity Premium Theory. Base on the question
1, it shows the information as follows:
1R1 = 1.50%
E(2r1) = 2.5%
E(3r1) = 3.0%
E(4r1) = 3.5%
E(5r1) = 4.5%
In addition, you charge a liquidity premium on longer-term
securities such that:
L2 = 0.15%
L3 = 0.25%
L4 = 0.35%
L5 = 0.40%

Question: Suppose that the current one-year rate (one-year spot
rate) and expected one-year T-bill rates over the following 3 years
(i.e., years 2, 3 and 4 respectively) are as follows:
1R1 = 0.4%, E(2r1) = 1.4%, E(3r1) = 8.8% E(4r1) = 9.15%
Using the unbiased expectations theory, calculate the current
(long-term) rates for three-year- and four-year-maturity Treasury
securities. Using the unbiased expectations theory, calculate the
long term rates for one, two, three, and four years maturity
Treasury securities. (Round answers...

Unbiased Expectations Theory Suppose that the current one-year
rate (one-year spot rate) and expected one-year T-bill rates over
the following three years (i.e., years 2, 3, and 4, respectively)
are as follows: 1R1=4.70%, E(2r1) =5.70%, E(3r1) =6.20%,
E(4r1)=6.55% Using the unbiased expectations theory, what is the
current (long-term) rate for four-year-maturity Treasury
securities?
