  • Treasury Bond Price in the U.S are quoted in dollars and thirty-second of a dollarThe quoted price is for a bond with a face value of $100Cash price = Quoted price +Accrued Interest

  • Treasury bond future price are quoted in the same way as the Treasury bond prices themselves.One contract involves the delivery of $100000 face value of the bondA $1 change in the quoted futures price would lead to a $1000 change in the value of the future contractDelivery can take place at any time during the delivery month

  • Cash prices received by party with short position=(Most Recent Settlement Price Conversion factor) + Accrued interestExample Settlement price of bond delivered = 90.00 Conversion factor = 1.3800 Accrued interest on bond =3.00 Price received for bond is (1.380090.00)+3.00 = $127.20per $100 of principal

  • The party with the short position receives = (Most recent settlement price Conversion factor)+ Accrued interestThe cost of purchasing a bond = Quoted bond price + Accrued interestThe cheapest-to-deliver is Min [Quoted bond price (Most recent settlement price Conversion factor)]

  • A Eurodollar is a dollar deposited in a bank outside the United States Eurodollar futures are futures on the 3-month Eurodollar deposit rate (same as 3-month LIBOR rate)One contract is on the rate earned on $1 million

    Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives 6th Edition, Copyright John C. Hull 2005

  • Eurodollar futures contracts last as long as 10 yearsWhen it expires (on the third Wednesday of the delivery month) the final settlement price is 100 minus the actual three month deposit rate 100-R

  • If Q is the quoted price of a Eurodollar futures contract, the value of one contract is 10,000[100-0.25(100-Q)]A change of one basis point or 0.01 in a Eurodollar futures quote corresponds to a contract price change of $25 The $25 per basis point rule is consistent that an interest rate per year changes by 1 basis point, the interest earned on 1 million dollar for 3 months change by 10000000.0001(0.01%) 0.25(3)=25 or $25

  • For Eurodollar futures lasting beyond two years we cannot assume that the forward rate equals the futures rateThere are Two Reasons reduce the forward rate1.Futures is settled daily where forward is settled once2.Futures is settled at the beginning of the underlying three-month period; forward is settled at the end of the underlying three- month period

  • Consider the situation where =0.012 and we wish to calculate the forward rate when the 8-year Eurodollar futures price quote is 94. 1. In this case T1=8, T2=8.25, and convexity adjustment is or 0.475%(47.5 basis points)

  • 2.The future rate is 6% per annum on an actual/360 basis, annual rate of 6%(365/360) = 6.083%

    3.The estimate of the forward rate is 6.083-0.475=5.608%

  • LIBOR deposit rates define the LIBOR zero curve out to one yearOnce the convexity adjustment just described has been made, Eurodollar futures are often used to extend the zero curve Eurodollar futures can be used to determine forward rates and the forward rates can then be used to extend the zero curveIt is usually assumed that the forward interest rate calculated from the future contract applies to the

  • If the 400 day LIBOR rate has been calculated as 4.80% with continuous compounding and the forward rate for the period between 400 and 491 days is 5.30%, the 491 days rate is 4.893%

  • When the hedge instrument is a Treasury bond futures contract , the hedger must base on an assumption that one particular bond will be delivered, this mind the hedger must estimate the cheapest-to-deliver bond the interest rates and future prices move in opposite direction

  • It is August 2. A fund manager has $10 million invested in a portfolio of government bonds with a duration of 6.80 years and wants to hedge against interest rate moves between August and DecemberThe manager decides to use December T-bond futures. The futures price is 93-02 or 93.0625 and the duration of the cheapest to deliver bond is 9.2 yearsThe number of contracts that should be shorted is

  • This involves hedging against interest rate risk by matching the durations of assets and liabilitiesIt provides protection against small parallel shifts in the zero curveDuration matching does not immunize a portfolio against nonparallel shifts in the zero curve

  • This is a more sophisticated approach used by banks to hedge interest rate. It involvesBucketing the zero curve Hedging exposure to situation where rates corresponding to one bucket change and all other rates stay the same.
