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...
The previous videos in this playlist have illustrated how we calculate the two most popular measures of single factor interest rate sensitivity, that is duration and dv01, also called price value of the basis point. Now, knowing how these calculations work we will apply them to understand some...
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.
Dear David,
Thanks a lot for video lectures they are much inspiring Still I was little bit confused with all these different names duration, modified duration, Macauly duration,.. etc...I will shortly examine mine view of this and kindly ask you to comment ( but without laughing:))
According to...
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 everyone
I watched David Harper's videos on Key Rate 01, but he uses spot rates, not par rates like in the example of Tuckman.
I have problems understanding that example, maybe someone is kind enough to enlighten me a little?

Why are par rates used as key rates and not spot rates? Is...

The Macaulay duration is the weighted average maturity of a bond, where the weights are the present values (as a percentage of the bond's price) of the cash flow. Hull's Table 4.6 below illustrates this nicely; the Macaulay duration of his 3-year bond is 2.653 years, which the sum...
