Explaining Bond Prices and Bond Yields
 
06:44
​In this revision video we work through some numerical examples of the inverse relationship between the market price of fixed-interest government bonds and the yields on those bonds. ​Government bonds are fixed interest securities. This means that a bond pays a fixed annual interest – this is known as the coupon The coupon (paid in £s, $s, Euros etc.) is fixed but the yield on a bond will vary The yield is effectively the interest rate on a bond. The yield will vary inversely with the market price of a bond 1.When bond prices are rising, the yield will fall 2.When bond prices are falling, the yield will rise - - - - - - - - - MORE ABOUT TUTOR2U ECONOMICS: Visit tutor2u Economics for thousands of free study notes, videos, quizzes and more: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics A Level Economics Revision Flashcards: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/alevel-economics-revision-flashcards A Level Economics Example Top Grade Essays: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/exemplar-essays-for-a-level-economics

What is a Treasury Bond (T-Bond)?
 
01:09
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Treasury Bond or T-Bond” A T-bond is a marketable, fixed-interest government debt security with a maturity of more than 10 years. Treasury bonds make interest payments semi-annually and the income that holders receive is only taxed at the federal level. Treasury bonds are issued with a minimum denomination of $1,000. The bonds are initially sold through auction in which the maximum purchase amount is $5 million if the bid is non-competitive or 35% of the offering if the bid is competitive. A competitive bid states the rate that the bidder is willing to accept; it will be accepted depending on how it compares to the set rate of the bond. A non-competitive bid ensures that the bidder will get the bond but he or she will have to accept the set rate. After the auction, the bonds can be sold in the secondary market.

Theoretical Price of Treasury Bond Futures Contract (FRM T3-27)
 
12:25
[here is my XLS https://trtl.bz/2LwXA7M] To calculate the theoretical futures price, we need to assume which cheapest-to-deliver (CTD) bond will be delivered by the short counterparty (who will have a choice at maturity of the contract). The quoted price of this CTD bond, which is the underlying commodity in the futures contract, is here assumed to be $115.00. Per the diagram, the quoted CTD bond price is translated into its cash (aka, full) price, by adding the accrued interest (AI). Then we estimate a FORWARD price ($119.711) that corresponds to this spot price ($116.978). Now we just "unravel" this cash forward price (of the CTD bond) by subtracting the anticipated accrued interest ($114.859 is thusly the quote/flat FORWARD price of the CTD bond) and divide by the conversion factor (CF) to obtain the theoretical FUTURES price: $1114.859 divided by 1.60 = $71.787.

Bonds: Spot Rates vs. Yield to Maturity

What's the difference between a spot rate and a bond's yield-to-maturity? In this video you'll learn how to find the price of the bond using spot rates, as well as how to find the yield-to-maturity of a bond once we know it's price. Simply put, spot rates are used to discount cash flows happening at a particular point in time, back to time 0. A bond's yield-to-maturity is the overall return that the investor will make by purchasing the bond - think of it as a weighted average!

FRM: Treasury bond futures: conversion factor
 
06:41
The short position in a US Treasury bond futures contract can select among many different eligible (maturity greater than 15 years) bonds for delivery. This is by design; the Fed and Treasury do NOT want to see a "run on the issue" if only one bond can be delivered. The conversion factor puts the eligible bonds on a level playing field, making the short almost (but not quite) indifferent to which bond is delivered.

FRM: Cheapest to deliver (CTD) Treasury bond
 
05:56
In the last screencast, we noted the role of the conversion factor (CF) is to make the short (in a Treasury bond futures contract) almost indifferent in delivery among several different eligible government bonds. The "almost" indifferent refers to the idea that the short can maximize his/her profit by selecting the cheapest to deliver (CTD) bond. The cheapest to deliver (CTD) bond minimizes [cost to acquire -- proceeds received] or maximizes [proceeds received -- cost to acquire].

Click Here to Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpeNTBaLA3xmrKSl7f0tWTA ===================================== It is Independence Day this week and I wanted to talk about how a lot of what independence is about is thinking for yourself, point out things you know that are not right. Sometimes this means you have to be on your own or at least with a small group that is going up against something large. And if you’ve been following me, you know that I’m a firm believe that the long only Big Box approach worked great in the 80’s and 90’s, but just hasn’t been working since 1999. Below you will find seven charts of different treasury yields. Each chart goes back to 1982. In each chart there will be a red dot – where the stock market peaked in 2000 and 2007. And a green dot – where the stock market bottomed after those two recessions. You’ll notice some interesting similarities in all of the 7 treasury yields charts. Also the Fed has less and less control over treasury yields the further and further out you go. So in our examples below the Fed has the most control over the 3 month yield and the least over the 30 year yield. The first chart below is of the 3 month treasury yield. You can see when the peak in yields happens in the early 1980s. Remember that The Feds are the ones that control this yield. The red dots are when the stock market peaked in 2000 and 2007. Notice how much yields fell during those times. In the 2000 Dot Com recession yields full from around 6% to eventually 1%. Similarly in the 2008 recession yields fell from about 5% all the way to 0%. In both recessions the yields fell 5%. So what do you think will happen to this yield when we have our next recession? If we have a recession right now and the Fed drops the yield 5% we’d have a -4% yield on the 3 month treasury. The next chart below is the 6 month treasury yield. You probably notice right away that the two charts look very similar. During each recession shown on the chart the yields drop about 5%. The biggest difference between the two charts are when rates started rising. You can see that the 6 month treasury yield began rising about two years before the 3 month yield. This is because the Fed has less of a reach on the 6 month yield. The point of showing you these charts is that the yield has a lot higher to go before we get into the next recession. It also can show you how absurd the behavior of the Fed has been considering the flatness of the line. This next price chart is of the 1 year treasury yield. Again you can see that the yield peaked right around the same time that the stock market peaked. But right after the stock market bottomed in 2002 the 1 year yield still continued to fall right after. You can see the similarities between the three charts. After each recession the yields dropped about 5%. Notice how steep this yield increases when the stock market goes up. Something that people forget is that yields historically move in the direction that stocks do. The next chart is the 2 year treasury. Again very similar. When the Dot Com recession happened the yield fell 6% and then during the 2008 Global Financial Crisis 5%. As you move further out on the yield curve the Fed has less control over it. This is interesting because after the yield bottomed in 2011, it has been steadily increasing on its own. The Fed didn’t start raising interest rates until December 2015. But the two year treasury which is controlled more by the public and the market, started moving up way before the Fed started moving their interest rates up.

What is Treasury Note ?
 
01:27
A treasury note is a U.S. government debt security that offers a fixed interest rate and a maturity date that ranges between one and 10 years. The government sells treasury notes to help fund its debt. They’re issued at a $1,000 par value, and T-notes pay interest twice a year. They’re redeemed for full face value at maturity, and income from T-notes is only taxed at the federal level. Since they’re backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, they’re considered very safe investments. Of course, that safety typically means the interest rates T-notes offer are low compared to corporate bonds or other securities. They’re vulnerable to inflation, as well. Average investors typically buy T-notes through a secondary market that provides liquidity and boosts their popularity. For example, Jane, a private investor, buys a 2-year T-note online at auction from the government. A year later, Jane sells that same T-note to a bank. Registered brokers and dealers regularly buy T-notes and then sell them to investors or among themselves. Secondary market prices for T-notes vary. T-notes can be bought with a competitive or noncompetitive bid. In a competitive bid, the buyer specifies the desired yield. A noncompetitive bid accepts whatever yield is determined at auction.

The Significance of a 3%-Plus 10-Year Treasury Yield.
 
13:28
In this report the early market action from London on Wednesday, April 25th, 2018. I look at the precious metals, the stock market, the dollar and the bond markets. I also talk about how a break above the 3% yield level for the 10-year note U.S. treasury would mark the probable end of the 30-year plus environment of decreasing interest rates and easy money. I note that since 1981, when the 10-year yield topped near 16%, the U.S. economy and government have been able to take on an exponential amount of debt and credit because of a favorable interest rate environment. My conclusion is that we could be at the very beginning of the unwind of the massive debt bubble that has been built since the early 1980s.

What are Treasury Securities?
 
02:09
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Treasury Securities” These U.S. government-issued debt securities are divided into three categories by maturity dates: Treasury bonds mature in 10 or more years, Treasury notes mature between one and 10 years and Treasury bills mature in one year or less. These debt obligations are considered the safest option for bond investors since they are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. But that safety comes at a price: The interest rates on Treasury’s are lower than other bonds with the same duration. Treasury securities are divided into three categories according to their lengths of maturities. These three types of bonds share many common characteristics, but also have some key differences. The categories and key features of treasury securities include: T-Bills – These have the shortest range of maturities of all government bonds at 4, 13, 26 and 52 weeks. They are the only type of treasury security found in both the capital and money markets, as three of the maturity terms fall under the 270-day dividing line between them. T-Bills are issued at a discount and mature at par value, with the difference between the purchase and sale prices constituting the interest paid on the bill. T-Notes – These notes represent the middle range of maturities in the treasury family, with maturity terms of 2, 3, 5, 7 and 10 years currently available. Treasury notes are issued at a $1,000 par value and mature at the same price. They pay interest semiannually. T-Bonds – Commonly referred to in the investment community as the “long bond”, T-Bonds are essentially identical to T-Notes except that they mature in 30 years. T-Bonds are also issued at and mature at a $1,000 par value and pay interest semiannually. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy

Why the 10-Year U.S. Treasury Yield Matters
 
13:28
10-year treasury bond yields are important indicators of the economy as a whole. Treasury bond yields (or rates) are tracked by investors for many reasons. The yields on the bonds are paid by the U.S. government as "interest" for borrowing money (via selling the bond). But what does it mean and how do you find yield information? Why is the ten-year treasury yield so important? The importance of the ten-year treasury bond yield goes beyond just understanding the return on investment for the security. The ten-year is used as a proxy for many other important financial matters, such as mortgage rates. This bond, which is sold at auction by the U.S. government, also tends to signal investor confidence. When confidence is high, the ten-year treasury bond's price drops and yields go higher because investors feel they can find higher returning investments and do not feel they need to play it safe. But when confidence is low, the price goes up as there is more demand for this safe investment and yields fall. This confidence factor can also be explored in non-U.S. countries. Often the price of U.S. government bonds is impacted by the geopolitical situations of other countries with the U.S. being deemed a safe haven, pushing the prices of U.S. government bonds up (as demand increases) and lowering yields. Another factor related to the yield is the time to maturity such that the longer the treasury bond's time to maturity, the higher the rates (or yields) because investors demand to get paid more the longer the investment ties up their money. This is a normal yield curve, which is most common, but at times the curve can be inverted (higher yields at lower maturities). 10-Year Treasury Yields Because the ten-year treasury yields are so closely followed and scrutinized, knowledge of the historical pattern is an integral component of understanding how today's yields fare as compared to historical rates. Below is a chart of the ten-year yields going back ten years. While rates do not have a wide dispersion, any change is considered highly significant and large changes -of 100 basis points- over time can redefine the economic landscape. Perhaps the most relevant aspect is in comparing current rates with historical rates, or following the trend to analyze if the near term rates will rise or fall based on historical patterns. Using the website of the U.S. Treasury itself, investors can easily analyze historical ten-year treasury bond yields. The ten-year treasury is a economic indicator in a sense that its yield tells investors more than the return on investment. While the historical yield range does not appear wide, any basis point movement is a signal to the market.

10 Year U.S. Treasury Yield - The long term trend is for lower rates
 
04:52
Nicole Elliott, Technical Analyst and Provide, speaks to Matt Brown about the 10 Year U.S. Treasury. This is an important yield to watch as it can have a huge impact on FX, Equities and other asset classed. Elliott notes how although rate hikes this year have pushed the yield higher, indications are for long term lower rates in the U.S. The recent retracement can be linked to hitting fibonacci restistance and the U.S. not renewing Janet Yellen's position as Fed Chair. Elliott highlights the flattening of the yield curve with the two year and ten year converging. Noting the spread is at it's lowest level since 2007. The 10 year indicates that the U.S. economy is not as healthy as Central banks may think and that bond markets are being sceptical.

Yield Curve Inversion!? Flattening Yield Curve Explained
 
03:56
Mad you missed out on this crazy market rebound? Don't be. Get rid of your FOMO with our free guide: https://macro-ops.com/fomo/ The Yield Curve Inversion Secrets! Understanding the Flattening Yield Curve is crucial for any trader or investor! Today we’re going to talk about the yield curve. Recently the financial media has been raving about the yield curve getting closer and closer to inverting and how it’s a signal that a recession is right around the corner. In this video we’re going to go over what the yield curve is, how to use it, and what it’s really signalling about the market. The yield curve is basically just a line that plots the yield of US treasury bonds (TLT) with different maturity dates. The curve lets you easily compare rates on short term bonds versus long term bonds. When long term bonds are yielding more than short term bonds, the line rises from left to right. And when this is the case, it’s called a normal yield curve. This is a signal that the economy and market are doing okay. When you start to see the yield curve flatten or even invert, meaning short-term rates become equal to or higher than long-term rates, and the line either becomes flat or sloped lower from left to right, then that usually signals trouble ahead in terms of a recession and lower market prices. Two things happen for the yield curve to become like this. First, the Fed starts raising short-term rates. Based on their mandates, they may see the economy overheating and decide to raise rates to slow it down. Higher rates hurt economic expansions. Second, investor expectations for the future become negative. And because of that, they buy up long-term bonds, lowering their yield. Those two together you a flat or inverted yield curve where short term bonds yield the same or even more than long-term bonds. And like this signals trouble ahead. According to our analysis, yes the curve is beginning to flatten and invert, but we still have a lot of time left before this bull iis done. Make sure to watch the video above for more!

Fiscal Policy: Introduction to Bond Markets and Interest Rate Determination
 
13:50
One of the least understood topics among introductory Econ students is how bond markets work. This video lesson introduces the bond market, and explains how the demand for a government's debt is an important determination of the borrowing costs faced by that government. We will answer some important questions about bond markets, such as, "What's the relationship between bond prices and bond yields?" and "How could budget deficits and debt affect interest rates?" In the next video we'll examine circumstances under which large budget deficits and national debt may NOT drive up a government's borrowing costs.

How High Might Bond Yields Rise?
 
03:02
The Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates for the past couple of years. It looks like they’re signaling that they’re going to continue to raise them over the next year or so, and yet what we’ve seen recently is that longer-term treasury bond yields haven’t been rising as much. On this episode of Bond Market Today, Kathy Jones and Collin Martin discuss how high bond yields might go in this cycle.

FRM: Treasury STRIPS

P-STRIPS and C-STRIPS are popular because: 1. They can be combined or re-constructed into any required sequence of cash flows, and 2. They are more sensitive to interest rates (i.e., higher duration) than coupon-bearing bonds (all other things being equal).

January 2019 Data Update 2: The Bond Market Message
 
10:58
In 2018, the US bond market was in sync with the US equity market, afflicted by the same fears and revealing the same patterns The US 10-year treasury bond rate, which started the year at 2.41% and rose as high as 3.24% in early November 2018, dropped back as worries about economic growth mounted. A flattening yield curve reinforced that message of lower growth. Looking to the next year, the gap between the ten-year bond rate (2.68%) and an intrinsic risk free rate (inflation + real growth for 2018 = 5.54%) is high, suggesting either that bond investors are being too pessimistic about future growth, or that growth will drop dramatically. I believe that we will split the difference, with higher T. Bond rates by the end of 2019 and lower economic growth in the US in 2019 than in 2018, albeit not a recession. Finally, the price of risk in the bond market (default spreads) rose in the last quarter of 2018, mirroring the rise in equity risk premiums. Investors in both stock and bond markets seem to have reached consensus that growth will slow and that there is more to fear. That said, they have been wrong in the past and we will see what 2019 delivers. Slides: http://www.stern.nyu.edu/~adamodar/pdfiles/blog/DataUpdate2for2019.pdf Datasets: 1. T.

Treasury Notes
 
04:47
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/bond-investing/treasury-notes Treasury Notes By: www.profitableinvestingtips.com Periodically congress decides to get into a fight over whether to approve the next budget or not. But rather than work on the issue of an ever increasing national debt before the fact, congress has made a habit of playing chicken with the full faith and integrity of the US government. When another high stakes game of "chicken" on Capitol Hill investors will be wondering what will happen to Treasury Notes (T-notes) if the US does not extend its ability to borrow to fund current expenses. Likewise investors in Treasury Notes may well wonder what the future is for interest rates on Treasury Notes and the value of the US dollar related to foreign currencies if the United States does not effectively deal with its long term debt. Treasury Notes are notes issued by the US government. They have maturities of two, three, five, seven, and ten years and a denomination of $100. Investors can buy Treasury Notes directly from the US Treasury, through a bank or through a stock broker. T-notes are often part of an investment portfolio for a conservative investor. They pay interest every six months until maturity at which time the owner gets back the principal. Treasury notes are also traded as their value fluctuates with prevailing interest rates. Investors can follow short term changes in T-notes and interest rates in general with Candlestick analysis just as they can follow stocks and commodities. It is important to do strict fundamental analysis of all factors involved when investing in treasury notes. Treasury Notes and Fluctuating Interest Rates It is the possibility of unpredictable interest rates that concerns investors and piques the interest of traders. T-notes are a form of interest rate investing. In long term investing a person will commonly purchase Treasury Notes and hold to maturity. In day trading one can follow fundamental analysis of interest rates and technical analysis of the interest rate market with technical analysis tools such as Candlestick pattern formations. In value investing for long term profits investors often wait until interest rates spike and then buy and hold for the long term. The Nuts and Bolts of Treasury Notes Investors and traders of Treasury Notes can place either competitive or noncompetitive bids for notes which are sold at auction or can simply buy them from their broker. Treasury Notes on the secondary market may be selling at a premium or a discount to their par value. T-notes rise or fall in value opposite to interest rates. The uncertainty of the US even temporarily defaulting on its debts has sent the stock market downward and could result in credit rating agencies, such as Standard and Poors, downgrading US debt. A lower debt rating typically drives up the cost of borrowing. That would mean that investors and traders would demand higher interest rates or would not buy T-Notes, thus driving the price up at weekly auctions. Anyone holding older Treasury Notes would continue to receive the same interest payment every six months but the value of their T-note would fall. If interest rates are going to rise in the coming weeks and months traders will be wise to sell T-notes and bonds in advance and buy T-notes or buy bonds when rates have gone up. If the powers that be in Washington are able to deal effectively with the US long term debt we could see a progressive fall of interest rates of Treasury Notes. In such a situation a trader using trading tools such as Candlestick charting to follow rates can purchase T-notes at the top of the interest rate curve and see the value of their T-notes progressively increase as rates fall. Investing in treasuries, like investing in bonds, requires that traders keep a close eye on the fundamentals that drive interest rates and use Candlestick chart formations to follow market sentiment. Smart investors pick profitable investment vehicles. Investing in high interest rate treasury notes and holding for the long term can be profitable. http://youtu.be/-izwxwpYnGo
