Question

An investor in Treasury securities expects inflation to be 2.15% in Year 1, 3.45% in Year 2, and 3.95% each year thereafter. Assume that the real risk-free rate is 1.95% and that this rate will remain constant. Three-year Treasury securities yield 6.15%, while 5-year Treasury securities yield 7.20%. What is the difference in the maturity risk premiums (MRPs) on the two securities; that is, what is MRP5 - MRP3? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.

Answer #1

**The difference is computed as shown below:**

**Inflation Premium 3 is computed as follows:**

= (2.15% + 3.45% + 3.95%) / 3

**= 3.183333333%**

**Inflation Premium 5 is computed as follows:**

= (2.15% + 3.45% + 3.95% + 3.95% + 3.95%) / 5

**= 3.49%**

**MRP3 is computed as follows:**

**Yield on 3 year treasury securities = real risk free
rate + Inflation Premium 3 + MRP3**

6.15% = 1.95% + 3.183333333% + MRP3

**MRP3 = 1.01666667%**

**MRP5 is computed as follows:**

**Yield on 5 year treasury securities = real risk free
rate + Inflation Premium 5 + MRP5**

7.20% = 1.95% + 3.49% + MRP5

**MRP5 = 1.76%**

**So, the difference is computed as follows:**

= 1.76% - 1.01666667%

**= 0.74%**

And
investor in treasury securities expects inflation to be 2.3% in
year one 3.1% in year two and 4.2% each year there after assume
that the real risk free rate is 2.45% and that this right when we
remain constant three year treasury securities yield 6.10% wow five
year treasury securities you'll 7.60% what is the difference in the
maturity risk premiums on the two securities that is what is MRP
five minus MRP three

Assume that the real risk-free rate, r*, is 4 percent, and that
inflation is expected to be 10% in Year 1, 6% in Year 2, and 4%
thereafter. Assume also that all Treasury bonds are highly liquid
and free of default risk. If 2-year and 5-year Treasury bonds both
yield 12%, what is the difference in the maturity risk premiums
(MRPs) on the two bonds, i.e., what is MRP5 - MRP2?

1. The real risk-free rate is 2.6%. Inflation
is expected to be 2.15% this year, 4.15% next year, and 2.65%
thereafter. The maturity risk premium is estimated to be 0.05 × (t
- 1)%, where t = number of years to maturity. What is the
yield on a 7-year Treasury note? Do not round your intermediate
calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.
2. A company's 5-year bonds are yielding 9.75%
per year. Treasury bonds with the same maturity...

EXPECTATIONS
THEORY
One-year Treasury
securities yield 3.65%. The market anticipates that 1 year from
now, 1-year Treasury securities will yield 5.55%. If the pure
expectations theory is correct, what is the yield today for 2-year
Treasury securities? Calculate the yield using a geometric average.
Do not round your intermediate calculations. Round your answer to
two decimal places.

Suppose the inflation rate is expected to be 7% next year, 6%
the following year, and 4% thereafter. Assume that the real
risk-free rate, r*, will remain at 2% and that maturity risk
premiums on Treasury securities rise from zero on very short-term
bonds (those that mature in a few days) to 0.2% for 1-year
securities. Furthermore, maturity risk premiums increase 0.2% for
each year to maturity, up to a limit of 1.0% on 5-year or
longer-term T-bonds. Calculate the...
