In this video, I'm going to try to illustrate all of the important ideas that are in Tuckman's Chapter 8: The Evolution of Short Rates and the Shape of the Term Structure. This chapter discusses the shape of the term structure and the key influences on the shape of the spot rate term structure...
In this playlist, David has already recorded at least ten videos on duration and convexity which are the two most common measures of single-factor interest rate risk. So, in this video, we wrap it up in one simple explanation that tries to illustrate both duration and convexity and how we apply...
Duration plus a convexity adjustment is a good estimate (approximation) of the bond's price change. We can express this change in percentage terms(%) as given by ΔP/P = -D*Δy + 0.5*C*(Δy)^2; or we can express this in dollar terms ($) as given by ΔP =∂P/∂y*Δy + 0.5*∂^2P/∂y^2*(Δy)^2.

Learning objectives: Define, compute, and interpret the effective duration of a fixed income security given a change in yield and the resulting change in price. Compare and contrast DV01 and effective duration as measures of price sensitivity. Define, compute, and interpret the convexity of a...
Hi everyone,
It's my first time posting but I've been reading the forums since I enrolled for the FRM part I more than a year ago and I wanted, before anything else, to thank you all, particularly David, for all the help I've gotten from such a knowledgeable and supportive community while...
Please, could you anyone explain me why the convexity increase at an increasing rate as duration increase. I think that the duration should be decrease at an increasing rate.
Best regards
Hello,
I am trying to work on convexity and duration exercises but every time I need the V+ and V- of a bond for my formulas and can't find how to calculate them.
Here's an example:
I have a bond 9% Coupon.
20 year
6% YTM
At 134.622
And a 20bp change in Yield. The convexity formula asks me...

Just thought I would like to share how you actually loose money regardless of the direction of the underlying when you are short gamma (or convexity) by shorting an option.
∆a be the underlying shares (or bonds whatever)
we know convexity as ∆a+ 1/2 Г a^2
Thus, our net position will be ∆a -...
