Fixed Income Fundamentals
In this Fixed Income Fundamentals course, we will explore the basic products and players in fixed income markets. We will introduce key features of a bond such as par value, coupon, yield curves, and credit spreads. Then, we will calculate the price of a bond using discounted cash flows and the relationship between a bond’s price and its yield. Clean prices, dirty prices, accrued interest, and day count are other fixed income topics discussed in this online course. Finally, we will explore bond risk measures including Macaulay duration, modified duration, dollar duration, and convexity. We will then calculate the price sensitivity to yield changes using these risk measures.
