Answer to Question #253197 in Civil and Environmental Engineering for nato

Question #253197
The price of a 10-year bond can decline by approximately 9% if interest rates rise by 1% point. To
illustrate this, suppose you own a 10-year U.S. Treasury bond that has a bond rate of 2% per year. How
much money will you lose if the value of the bond today is $10,000 (face value of the bond) and the yield increases to 3% within the next few months? 1 Expert's answer 2021-10-19T14:53:02-0400 If the value of bond today is$10,000

lets say next few month will be 6 months

bond rate= 2% per year so it will be 1% in 6 months

Yield increase= 3% (let say for 2 months)

so 9% will be for 6 months

"=\\frac{(10,000\\times9)}{100}"

"=\\$900" so the total loss will be$900 from the bond value price.
