there is a higher chance that the market yield Will be higher than your coupon rate so if that s the case then all of a sudden your bond is trading at a discount Which in sense means you just lost a

security can not be easily converted into cash and converted at the fair market value When the liquidity premium is high then the asset is said to be illiguid which will cause prices to fall and interest rates to rise All else being equal a bond obligation will be more sensitive to interest rate uctuations the longer to maturity it is In general When in ation is on the rise bond prices fall When in ation is decreasing bond prices rise That s because rising in ation erodes the purchasing power of What you ll earn on your investment In other words When your bono matures the return you ve earned on your investment Will be worth less in today s dollars is an economic theory proposed by economist Irving Fisher that describes the relationship between in ation and both real and nominal
