easier to price Zero coupon bonds are also called discount bonds because they must sell at a discount to par value Yield to Maturity YTM or iust yield The discount rate that sets the present value of the bond payments equal to the current price of the bond In other words finding this is like solving for our trusty r It s always quoted like an APR annual terms with no compounding lf YTM coupon rate

Price Yield to Maturity of a ZeroCoupon Bond We can graph the implied discount rates of zerocoupon bonds as a function of their time to maturity This is called the yield curve sometimes called term structure Rising yield curve Could mean investors think interest rates Will rise in the future Also could mean it s just riskier to invest longer so you get more return for buying longer term bonds Declining inverted yield curve very rare Means interest rates are expected to be lower in the future than they are today When interest rates go up bond prices go down and vice versa All else equal
