FUTURES What is the implied nominal interest rate on a 10-year U.S. T-notes ($100,000) futures contract that settled at 103-060? If interest rates increased by 3%, what would be the contract's new value?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The implied nominal interest rate and new value of the contract.

Explanation

Given information:

A Country U’s Treasury notes of $100,000 for 10-years where a future contract is formed to settle at 103-060. The interest rates increased by 3 percent.

Compute the implied nominal interest rate and new value of the contract:

The future contract settled at 1036/32% that means 103 plus (632%) of the value of Treasury note that is $103,187.50(1.031875×$100,000$1,000×100) . The number of bonds issued is 100 based on assumption. Now, determine the implied nominal interest rate (rd) using the following equation by a financial calculator:

rd=t=120Present value of treasury note
