3 Bond basics Example: U.S. Treasury (Table 7.1) Bills (<1 year), no coupons, sell at discount Notes (1-10 years), Bonds (10-30 years), coupons, sell at par STRIPS: claim to a single coupon or principal, zero-coupon Notation: r t (t 1,t 2 ): Interest rate from time t 1 to t 2 prevailing at time t. P t o (t 1,t 2 ): Price of a bond quoted at t= t 0 to be purchased at t=t 1 maturing at t= t 2 Yield to maturity: Percentage increase in \$s earned from the bond Slide 09-3

4 Bond basics (cont.) Zero-coupon bonds make a single payment at maturity One year zero-coupon bond: P(0,1)= Pay \$ today to receive \$1 at t=1 Yield to maturity (YTM) = 1/ = 0.06 = 6% = r (0,1) Two year zero-coupon bond: P(0,2)= YTM=1/ = =(1+r(0,2)) 2 =>r(0,2)=0.065=6.5% Slide 09-4

In general: Example 7.1: [ 1 r ( t, t )] t t 2 1 [ 1 r ( 0, t )] 0 2 [ 1 r ( 0, t )] 0 1 P( 0, t1) P( 0, t ) What are the implied forward rate r 0 (2,3) and forward zero-coupon bond price P 0 (2,3) from year 2 to year 3? (use Table 7.1) t t P r0 ( 2, ) (, ) P( 0, 3) P0 ( 2, 3) P( 0, 3) P( 0, 2) Slide 09-7

8 Coupon bonds The price at time of issue of t of a bond maturing at time T that pays n coupons of size c and maturity payment of \$1: B ( t, T, c, n) cp ( t, t ) P ( t, T) t t i t i 1 where t i = t + i(t - t)/n n For the bond to sell at par, i.e. B(t,T,c,n)=1 the coupon size must be: P ( t, T) c 1 n i 1 t P ( t, t ) t i Slide 09-8

10 Duration Duration is a measure of sensitivity of a bond s price to changes in interest rates Duration \$ Change in price for a unit change in yield Modified Duration % Change in price for a unit change in yield Change in bond price Unit change in yield 1 Ci i 1 y i 1 ( 1 y) divide by 100 (10,000) for change in price given a 1% (1 basis point) change in yield Duration 1 1 Ci 1 i i B( y) 1 y ( 1 y) B( y) i n 1 n i Macaulay Duration Size-weighted average of time until payments Duration 1 y Ci 1 i i B( y) ( 1 y) B( y) y: yield per period; to annualize divide by # of payments per year B(y): bond price as a function of yield y i n 1 Slide 09-10

11 Duration (Examples) Example 7.4 & year zero-coupon bond with maturity value of \$100 Bond price at YTM of 7.00%: \$100/( )=\$ Bond price at YTM of 7.01%: \$100/( )=\$ Duration: For a basis point (0.01%) change: -\$228.87/10,000=-\$ Macaulay duration: ( \$ ) \$ Example year annual coupon ( %) par bond Macaulay Duration:. ( ) ( \$ ) ( \$ ) =-\$ Slide 09-11

12 Duration (cont.) What is the new bond price B(y+ ) given a small change in yield? Rewrite the Macaulay duration: And rearrange: B(y) B(y) 1 y Example 7.7 Consider the 3-year zero-coupon bond with price \$81.63 and yield 7% What will be the price of the bond if the yield were to increase to 7.25%? B(7.25%) = \$ ( 3 x \$81.63 x / 1.07 ) = \$ Using ordinary bond pricing: B(7.25%) = \$100 / (1.0725) 3 = \$ The formula is only approximate due to the bond s convexity D Mac B(y ) [B(y ) [D B(y)] 1 y B(y) Mac ] Slide 09-12

13 Duration matching Suppose we own a bond with time to maturity t 1, price B 1, and Macaulay duration D 1 How many (N) of another bond with time to maturity t 2, price B 2, and Macaulay duration D 2 do we need to short to eliminate sensitivity to interest rate changes? The hedge ratio: N D1 B1 ( y1) / ( 1 y1) D B ( y ) / ( 1 y ) B(y) Using B(y ) B(y) [D for portfolio B 1 + N B Mac ] 2 1 y The value of the resulting portfolio with duration zero is B 1 +NB 2 Example 7.8 We own a 7-year 6% annual coupon bond yielding 7% Want to match its duration by shorting a 10-year, 8% bond yielding 7.5% You can verify that B 1 =\$94.611, B 2 =\$ , D 1 =5.882, and D 2 =7.297 N / / Slide 09-13

15 Term structure of real interest rates Bond prices carry all the information on intertemporal rates of substitution, primarily affected by expectations, and only indirectly by risk considerations. Collection of interest rates for different times to maturity is a meaningful predictor of future economic developments. More optimistic expectations produce an upwardsloping term structure of interest rates. Slide 09-15

16 Term structure The price of a risk-free discount bond which matures in period t is t = E[M t ]=1/(1+y t ) t The corresponding (gross) yield is 1+y t = ( t ) -1/t = -1 [ E[u'(w t )] / u'(w 0 ) ] -1/t. Collection of interest rates is the term structure, (y 1, y 2, y 3, ). Note that these are real yield rates (net of inflation), as are all prices and returns. Slide 09-16

17 Term structure 2.5% 2.0% 1.5% 1.0% Left figure is an example of the term structure of real interest rates, measured with U.S. Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS), on August 2, Source: Right hand shows nominal yield curve Source: Slide 09-17

18 Term structure 1+y t = -1 {E[u'(w t )] / u'(w 0 ) } -1/t. Let g t be the (state dependent) growth rate per period between period t and period 0, so (1+g t ) t = w t / w 0. Assume further that the representative agent has CRRA utility and a first-order approximations yields y t ¼ E{g t } ln. (Homework! Note ln(1+y) ¼ y) The yield curve measures expected growth rates over different horizons. Slide 09-18

19 y t ¼ Term structure E{g t } ln Approximation ignores second-order effects of uncertainty but we know that more uncertainty depresses interest rates if the representative agent is prudent. Thus, if long horizon uncertainty about the per capita growth rate is smaller than about short horizons (for instance if growth rates are mean reverting), then the term structure of interest rates will be upward sloping. Slide 09-19

20 The expectations hypothesis cross section of prices: The term structure are bond prices at a particular point in time. This is a cross section of prices. time series properties: how do interest rates evolve as time goes by? Time series view is the relevant view for an investor how tries to decide what kind of bonds to invest into, or what kind of loan to take. Slide 09-20

21 The expectations hypothesis Suppose you have some spare capital that you will not need for 2 years. You could invest it into 2 year discount bonds, yielding a return rate of y 0,2. Of course, since bonds are continuously traded, you could alternatively invest into 1-year discount bonds, and then roll over these bonds when they mature. The expected yield is (1+y 0,1 )E[(1+y 1,2 )]. Or you could buy a 3-year bond and sell it after 2 years. Which of these possibilities is the best? Slide 09-21

22 The expectations hypothesis Only the first strategy is truly free of risk. The other two strategies are risky, since price of 3-year bond in period 2 is unknown today, & tomorrow's yield of a 1-year bond is not known today. Term premia: the possible premium that these risky strategies have over the risk-free strategy are called term premia. (special form of risk premium). Slide 09-22

23 The expectations hypothesis Consider a t-period discount bond. The price of this bond 0,t = E[M t ] = E[m 1 Lm t ]. one has to invest 0,t in t=0 in order to receive one consumption unit in period t. Alternatively, one could buy 1-period discount bonds and roll them over t-times. The investment that is necessary today to get one consumption unit (in expectation) in period t with this strategy is E[m 1 ]L E[m t ]. (to see this for t=2: buying 1,2 bonds at t=0 costing 0,1 1,2 pays in expectations at t=1, which allows to pay one bond which ultimately pays \$1 at t=2) Slide 09-23

24 The expectations hypothesis Two strategies yield same expected return rate if and only if E[m 1 Lm t ] = E[m 1 ] L E[m t ], which holds if m t is serially uncorrelated. In that case, there are no term premia an assumption known as the expectations hypothesis. Whenever m t is serially correlated (for instance because the growth process is serially correlated), then expectations hypothesis may fail. Slide 09-24

26 Futures contracts Exchange-traded forward contracts Typical features of futures contracts Standardized, specified delivery dates, locations, procedures A clearinghouse Matches buy and sell orders Keeps track of members obligations and payments After matching the trades, becomes counterparty Differences from forward contracts Settled daily through mark-to-market process low credit risk Highly liquid easier to offset an existing position Highly standardized structure harder to customize Slide 09-26

27 Example: S&P 500 Futures WSJ listing: Contract specifications: Slide 09-27

28 Example: S&P 500 Futures (cont.) Notional value: \$250 x Index Cash-settled contract Open interest: total number of buy/sell pairs Margin and mark-to-market Initial margin Maintenance margin (70-80% of initial margin) Margin call Daily mark-to-market Futures prices vs. forward prices The difference negligible especially for short-lived contracts Can be significant for long-lived contracts and/or when interest rates are correlated with the price of the underlying asset Slide 09-28

30 Forwards versus futures pricing Price of Forward using EMM is 0 = E t* [ T (F 0,T -S T )]=E t* [ T ] (F 0,T -E t* [S T ]) - Cov * t[ T, S T ] for fixed interest rate F 0,T = E t* [S T ] Price of Futures contract is always zero. Each period there is a dividend stream of t - t-1 and T = S T 0 = E t* [ t+1 ( t+1 - t )] for all t since t+1 is known at t t = E t* [ t+1 ] and T = S T t = E t* [S T ] Futures price process is always a martingale Slide 09-30

32 Uses of index futures Why buy an index futures contract instead of synthesizing it using the stocks in the index? Lower transaction costs Asset allocation: switching investments among asset classes Example: Invested in the S&P 500 index and temporarily wish to temporarily invest in bonds instead of index. What to do? Alternative #1: Sell all 500 stocks and invest in bonds Alternative #2: Take a short forward position in S&P 500 index Slide 09-32

33 Uses of index futures (cont.) \$100 million portfolio with of 1.4 and r f = 6 % 1. Adjust for difference in \$ amount 1 futures contract \$250 x 1100 = \$275,000 Number of contracts needed \$100mill/\$0.275mill = Adjust for difference in x 1.4 = contracts Slide 09-33

34 Uses of index futures (cont.) Cross-hedging with perfect correlation Cross-hedging with imperfect correlation General asset allocation: futures overlay Risk management for stock-pickers Slide 09-34

35 Widely used to hedge against changes in exchange rates WSJ listing: Currency contracts Slide 09-35

36 Currency contracts: pricing Currency prepaid forward Suppose you want to purchase 1 one year from today using \$s F P 0, T = x 0 e r y T (price of prepaid forward) where x 0 is current (\$/ ) exchange rate, and r y is the yendenominated interest rate Why? By deferring delivery of the currency one loses interest income from bonds denominated in that currency Currency forward F 0, T = x 0 e r r y )T r is the \$-denominated domestic interest rate F 0, T > x 0 if r > r y (domestic risk-free rate exceeds foreign riskfree rate) Slide 09-36

37 Currency contracts: pricing (cont.) Example 5.3: -denominated interest rate is 2% and current (\$/ ) exchange rate is To have 1 in one year one needs to invest today: 0.009/ x 1 x e = \$ Example 5.4: -denominated interest rate is 2% and \$-denominated rate is 6%. The current (\$/ ) exchange rate is The 1-year forward rate: 0.009e = Slide 09-37

38 Currency contracts: pricing (cont.) Synthetic currency forward: borrowing in one currency and lending in another creates the same cash flow as a forward contract Covered interest arbitrage: offset the synthetic forward position with an actual forward contract Table 5.12 Slide 09-38

40 Introduction to Commodity Forwards Fin 501:Asset Pricing I Commodity forward prices can be described by the same formula as that for financial forward prices: F 0,T = S 0 e (r )T For financial assets, is the dividend yield. For commodities, is the commodity lease rate. The lease rate is the return that makes an investor willing to buy and then lend a commodity. The lease rate for a commodity can typically be estimated only by observing the forward prices. Slide 09-40

41 Introduction to Commodity Forwards The set of prices for different expiration dates for a given commodity is called the forward curve (or the forward strip) for that date. If on a given date the forward curve is upward-sloping, then the market is in contango. If the forward curve is downward sloping, the market is in backwardation. Note that forward curves can have portions in backwardation and portions in contango. Slide 09-41

42 Forward rate agreements FRAs are over-the-counter contracts that guarantee a borrowing or lending rate on a given notional principal amount Can be settled at maturity (in arrears) or the initiation of the borrowing or lending transaction FRA settlement in arrears: (r qrtly - r FRA ) x notional principal At the time of borrowing: notional principal x (r qrtly - r FRA )/(1+r qrtly ) FRAs can be synthetically replicated using zero-coupon bonds Slide 09-42

43 Forward rate agreements (cont.) Slide 09-43

44 Eurodollar futures Very similar in nature to an FRA with subtle differences The settlement structure of Eurodollar contracts favors borrowers Therefore the rate implicit in Eurodollar futures is greater than the FRA rate => Convexity bias The payoff at expiration: [Futures price - (100 - r LIBOR )] x 100 x \$25 Example: Hedging \$100 million borrowing with Eurodollar futures: Slide 09-44

45 Eurodollar futures (cont.) Recently Eurodollar futures took over T-bill futures as the preferred contract to manage interest rate risk. LIBOR tracks the corporate borrowing rates better than the T-bill rate Slide 09-45

46 Interest rate strips and stacks Suppose we will borrow \$100 million in 6 months for a period of 2 years by rolling over the total every 3 months r 1 =? r 2 =? r 3 =? r 4 =? r 5 =? r 6 =? r 7 =? r 8 =? \$100 \$100 \$100 \$100 \$100 \$100 \$100 \$100 Two alternatives to hedge the interest rate risk: Strip: Eight separate \$100 million FRAs for each 3-month period Stack: Enter 6-month FRA for ~\$800 million. Each quarter enter into another FRA decreasing the total by ~\$100 each time Strip is the best alternative but requires the existence of FRA far into the future. Stack is more feasible but suffers from basis risk Slide 09-46

47 Treasury bond/note futures WSJ listings for T-bond and T-note futures Contract specifications Slide 09-47

48 Treasury bond/note futures (cont.) Long T-note futures position is an obligation to buy a 6% bond with maturity between 6.5 and 10 years to maturity The short party is able to choose from various maturities and coupons: the cheapest-to-deliver bond In exchange for the delivery the long pays the short the invoice price. Price of the bond if it were to yield 6% Invoice price = (Futures price x conversion factor) + accrued interest Slide 09-48

52 Introduction to Swaps A swap is a contract calling for an exchange of payments, on one or more dates, determined by the difference in two prices. A swap provides a means to hedge a stream of risky payments. A single-payment swap is the same thing as a cash-settled forward contract. Slide 09-52

53 An example of a commodity swap An industrial producer, IP Inc., needs to buy 100,000 barrels of oil 1 year from today and 2 years from today. The forward prices for deliver in 1 year and 2 years are \$20 and \$21/barrel. The 1- and 2-year zero-coupon bond yields are 6% and 6.5%. Slide 09-53

54 An example of a commodity swap IP can guarantee the cost of buying oil for the next 2 years by entering into long forward contracts for 100,000 barrels in each of the next 2 years. The PV of this cost per barrel is \$ 20 \$ 21 \$ Thus, IP could pay an oil supplier \$37.383, and the supplier would commit to delivering one barrel in each of the next two years. Slide 09-54

55 An example of a commodity swap With a prepaid swap, the buyer might worry about the resulting credit risk. Therefore, a better solution is to defer payments until the oil is delivered, while still fixing the total price. x x \$ Any payment stream with a PV of \$ is acceptable. Typically, a swap will call for equal payments in each year. For example, the payment per year per barrel, x, will have to be \$ to satisfy the following equation: Slide 09-55

56 Physical versus financial settlement Physical settlement of the swap: Slide 09-56

57 Physical versus financial settlement Financial settlement of the swap: The oil buyer, IP, pays the swap counterparty the difference between \$ and the spot price, and the oil buyer then buys oil at the spot price. If the difference between \$ and the spot price is negative, then the swap counterparty pays the buyer. Slide 09-57

58 Physical versus financial settlement The results for the buyer are the same whether the swap is settled physically or financially. In both cases, the net cost to the oil buyer is \$ Slide 09-59

59 Swaps are nothing more than forward contracts coupled with borrowing and lending money. Consider the swap price of \$20.483/barrel. Relative to the forward curve price of \$20 in 1 year and \$21 in 2 years, we are overpaying by \$0.483 in the first year, and we are underpaying by \$0.517 in the second year. Thus, by entering into the swap, we are lending the counterparty money for 1 year. The interest rate on this loan is / = 7%. Given 1- and 2-year zero-coupon bond yields of 6% and 6.5%, 7% is the 1-year implied forward yield from year 1 to year 2. Slide 09-60

60 The market value of a swap The market value of a swap is zero at interception. Once the swap is struck, its market value will generally no longer be zero because: the forward prices for oil and interest rates will change over time; even if prices do not change, the market value of swaps will change over time due to the implicit borrowing and lending. A buyer wishing to exit the swap could enter into an offsetting swap with the original counterparty or whomever offers the best price. The market value of the swap is the difference in the PV of payments between the original and new swap rates. Slide 09-63

61 Interest Rate Swaps The notional principle of the swap is the amount on which the interest payments are based. The life of the swap is the swap term or swap tenor. If swap payments are made at the end of the period (when interest is due), the swap is said to be settled in arrears. Slide 09-64

62 An example of an interest rate swap XYZ Corp. has \$200M of floating-rate debt at LIBOR, i.e., every year it pays that year s current LIBOR. XYZ would prefer to have fixed-rate debt with 3 years to maturity. XYZ could enter a swap, in which they receive a floating rate and pay the fixed rate, which is %. Slide 09-65

63 An example of an interest rate swap On net, XYZ pays %: XYZ net payment = LIBOR + LIBOR % = % Floating Payment Swap Payment Slide 09-66

64 Computing the swap rate Suppose there are n swap settlements, occurring on dates t i, i = 1,, n. The implied forward interest rate from date t i-1 to date t i, known at date 0, is r 0 (t i-1, t i ). The price of a zero-coupon bond maturing on date t i is P(0, t i ). The fixed swap rate is R. The market-maker is a counterparty to the swap in order to earn fees, not to take on interest rate risk. Therefore, the marketmaker will hedge the floating rate payments by using, for example, forward rate Slide 09-67

65 Computing the swap rate The requirement that the hedged swap have zero net PV is Equation (8.1) can be rewritten as R n P(0, t i 1 i) [R r0 (ti -1, ti)] 0 n i 1 P(0, t n i 1 i )r 0 (t P(0, t i i-1 ), t i ) (8.1) (8.2) n where i=1 P(0, t i ) r 0 (t i-1, t i ) is the PV of interest payments implied by n the strip of forward rates, and i=1 P(0, t i ) is the PV of a \$1 annuity when interest rates vary over time. Slide 09-68

66 Computing the swap rate We can rewrite equation (8.2) to make it easier to interpret: R n i 1 P(0, t n j 1 P(0, t Thus, the fixed swap rate is as a weighted average of the implied forward rates, where zero-coupon bond prices are used to determine the weights. i ) j ) r 0 (t i 1, t i ) Slide 09-69

67 Computing the swap rate Alternative way to express the swap rate is R - using r 0 (t 1,t 2 ) = P(0,t 1 )/P(0,t 2 ) 1 1 n i P(0, t (8.3) This equation is equivalent to the formula for the coupon on a par coupon bond. 1 n P(0, t ) i ) Thus, the swap rate is the coupon rate on a par coupon bond. (firm that swaps floating for fixed ends up with economic equivalent of a fixed-rate bond) Slide 09-70

68 The swap curve A set of swap rates at different maturities is called the swap curve. The swap curve should be consistent with the interest rate curve implied by the Eurodollar futures contract, which is used to hedge swaps. Recall that the Eurodollar futures contract provides a set of 3-month forward LIBOR rates. In turn, zero-coupon bond prices can be constructed from implied forward rates. Therefore, we can use this information to compute swap rates. Slide 09-71

69 The swap curve For example, the December swap rate can be computed using equation (8.3): ( )/ ( ) = 1.778%. Multiplying 1.778% by 4 to annualize the rate gives the December swap rate of 7.109%. Slide 09-72

70 The swap curve The swap spread is the difference between swap rates and Treasury-bond yields for comparable maturities. Slide 09-73

71 The swap s implicit loan balance Implicit borrowing and lending in a swap can be illustrated using the following graph, where the 10-year swap rate is %: Slide 09-74

72 The swap s implicit loan balance In the above graph, Consider an investor who pays fixed and receives floating. This investor is paying a high rate in the early years of the swap, and hence is lending money. About halfway through the life of the swap, the Eurodollar forward rate exceeds the swap rate and the loan balance declines, falling to zero by the end of the swap. Therefore, the credit risk in this swap is borne, at least initially, by the fixed-rate payer, who is lending to the fixed-rate recipient. Slide 09-75

73 Deferred swap A deferred swap is a swap that begins at some date in the future, but its swap rate is agreed upon today. T R i k P(0, t The fixed rate on a deferred swap beginning in k periods is computed as T i k i )r 0 (t P(0, t i i ) 1, t i ) Slide (8.4)

74 Why swap interest rates? Interest rate swaps permit firms to separate credit risk and interest rate risk. By swapping its interest rate exposure, a firm can pay the short-term interest rate it desires, while the longterm bondholders will continue to bear the credit risk. Slide 09-77

75 Amortizing and accreting swaps An amortizing swap is a swap where the notional value is declining over time (e.g., floating rate mortgage). An accreting swap is a swap where the notional value is growing over time. The fixed swap rate is still a weighted average of implied forward rates, but now the weights also involve changing notional principle, Q t : R n i 1 Q P( 0, t ) r( t, t ) ti i i 1 i n Qt P( 0, t i i i ) 1 (8.7) Slide 09-78
