The term structure of interest rate can be defined as the graphical representation that depicts the relationship between interest rates (or yields on a bond) and a range of different maturities. The graph itself is called a “ yield curve ”.

Accurate forecasting of the term structure of interest rates also plays a very important role for many reasons, particularly for bond portfolio and risk management, hedging derivatives, monetary and debt policy.

EMPIRICAL ANALYSES OF THE TERM STRUCTURE OF INTEREST RATES By Robert Edwin Brooks May Chairman: Haim Levy Major Department: Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate The purpose of this study is to enhance the current understanding of the term structure of interest rates.

The term structure of interest rates is an old topic. Over the years, both the hypotheses debated and the research techniques used have changed considerably. Two fairly recent developments which distinguish current research are the widespread adoption of rational expectations and the integration of the term structure with the general theory of asset pricing.

CHAPTER 5 Transactions Costs and the Term Structure of Interest Rates (pp. ) Despite the fact that we have found strong empirical evidence supporting our modified expectations hypothesis, it is by no means safe to conclude that expectations can, by themselves, provide a complete explanation of the rate structure.

An Empirical Analysis of the Curvature Factor of the Term Structure of Interest Rates Matteo Modena University of Glasgow Draft: September Abstract This work extends the strand of literature that examines the relation between the term structure of interest rates and macroeconomic variables.

3 empirical facts of the yield curve: 1. Interest rates on bonds of different maturities move together over time 2. When ST rates are low, the yield curve is upward sloping, when high – downward sloping (inverted) 3. Most often, the yield curve is upward sloping and concave. Understanding Term Structure Of Interest Rates Essentially, term structure of interest rates is the relationship between interest rates or bond yields and different terms or maturities.

securities yield 3 per cent and one-year securities 2 per cent. The forward rate on one-year money one year hence, or the marginal cost of extending a one-year term to maturity for an additional.

year, is 4 per cent; this is arithmetic, not the expectations hypoth- esis. An Empirical Analysis of the Canadian Term Structure of Zero-Coupon Interest Rates Zero-coupon interest rates are the fundamental building block of fixed-income mathematics, and as such have an extensive number of applications in both finance and economics.

Unconditionally, the term structure of real rates assumes a fairly flat shape around %, with a slight hump, peaking at a 1-year maturity. However, there are some regimes in which the real rate curve is downward sloping. Real rates are quite variable at. by most term structure analyses, the preponderance of empirical evidence suggests that the rela- tionships between interest rates and macroeconomic variables changed during the past 40 years, as the reaction function setting monetary policy has changed (e.g., Fuhrer ).

After that we will summarize some empirical work on the term structure of the interest rates and show how one can model the interest rate process as a stochastic process. As we will show stochastic processes are very useful tools for interest rate and, more generally, financial market analysis.

Basic stochastic processes are summarized in Author: Willi Semmler, Willi Semmler. Empirical Analysis of the EU Term Structure of Interest Rates.

Over this period, the core consumer price index (CPIX) averaged per cent, with a standard deviation of approximately per cent. Inflation expectations (as measured by the yield spread between nominal and real return bonds) averaged per cent, with a Cited by: The yield curve shows how yield changes with time to maturity — it is a graphical representation of the term structure of interest rates.

The general pattern is that shorter maturities have lower interest rates than longer maturities. The yield of a bond depends on the price of the bond, which in turn, depends on the supply and demand for a particular bond issue.

A large volume of research into the term structure of interest rates has tested the EHTS where in the majority of cases, it has been rejected (see, for example, Mankiw,Mankiw and Summers,Shiller et al.,Taylor, ).

Conversely, studies such as MacDonald and Speight () have found evidence in favor of the EHTS. The Cited by:. The Term Structure of Interest Rates What is it? The relationship among interest rates over different time-horizons, as viewed from today, t = 0.
