Question

Assume that as of today, the annualized interest rate for a seven-year bond is 10 percent, while the annualized interest rate for a three-year bond is 7 percent. Use only this information to estimate the annualized interest rate for a four-year bond expected in three years. Use the geometric average method.

Answer #1

As per geometric mean return formula the holding period return is the total return over multiple periods. Hence seven-year investment rate comprises of three-year investment rate and future extended four-year rate of return.

(1+r7)7 = (1+r3)3 x (1+r4)4

(1+ 0.1)7 = [(1+ 0.07)3 x (1+r4)4]

(1.1)7 = [(1.07)3 x (1+r4)4]

1.9487171 = 1.225043 x (1+r4)4

1.9487171/ 1.225043 = (1+r4)4

(1+r4)4 = 1.5907336313909

1+r4 = 4 √1.5907336313909

= 1.12305070745382

r4 = 1.12305070745382 – 1 = 0.
12305070745382 or **12.31 %**

Annualized interest rate for a four-year bond expected in three years is 12.31 %

Assume that as of today, the annualized interest rate for a
twelve-year bond is 8 percent. Today’s annualized interest rate for
a five-year bond is 6 percent. The annualized interest rate for a
four-year bond expected in five years is 5 percent. Use only this
information to estimate the annualized interest rate for a
three-year bond expected in nine years. The interest rate for a
twelve-year bond has a .10% liquidity premium. Use the geometric
average method.

Assume the following information. • Interest rate on borrowed
euros is 5 percent annualized. • Interest rate on dollars loaned
out is 6 percent annualized. • Spot rate is 1.10 euros per dollar
(one euro = $0.909). • Expected spot rate in five days is 1.15
euros per dollar. • Fabrizio Bank can borrow 10 million
euros.
If Fabrizio Bank attempts to capitalize on the above information,
its profit over the five-day period is

Suppose that:
1) The interest rate on a one-year bond today is 3%;
2) The interest rate on a one-year bond starting one year from
now is expected to be 4% per year;
3) The interest rate on a one-year bond starting two years from
now is expected to be 5% per year;
4) The risk premium on a two-year bond is 0.5%; and
5) The risk premium on a three-year bond is 1%.
Use that information to answer the...

Assume the current interest rate on a one-year Treasury bond
(1R1) is 4.50 percent, the current rate on a two-year Treasury bond
(1R2) is 5.25 percent, and the current rate on a three-year
Treasury bond (1R3) is 6.50 percent. If the unbiased expectations
theory of the term structure of interest rates is correct, what is
the one-year interest rate expected on Treasury bills during year 3
(E( 3r1) or 3 f1)?

If the interest rate on a one-year bond selling today is 2%, the
expected interest rate on a one-year bond one year from today is
5%, and the liquidity premium is zero, what does expectations
theory imply that the interest rate on a two-year bond selling
today would be?
What does this do to the price of one-year bonds?
What does this do to the yield on one -year bonds?
