When comparing yields on investments of different compounding frequency, we convert the stated rates to EARs. As we will see, even that is not enough. Day-count conventions Each fixed-income market has its own quote and day-count convention. Our examples were simplified so that for quarterly periods we divided the stated rates by 4. Implicitly, we were using what is called a 30/360 day-count convention. A day-count convention is a commonly accepted method of counting two things: the number of days within the interest calculation period and the number of days in a year.

To obtain EARs, we compute the yields each investment earns if it is rolled over at its original yield for a total holding period of 1 year. EAR3m ¼ ð1 þ 0:038364=4Þ 4 À 1 ¼ ð100=99:05Þ 4 À 1 ¼ 3:8920% EAR6m ¼ ð1 þ 0:038364=2Þ 2 À 1 ¼ ð100=98:1179Þ 2 À 1 ¼ 3:8732% Alternatively, we could compute the semi-annual equivalent of the 3-month rate by following the logic behind EAR but only over a 6-month horizon. The equivalent semi-annual rate (ESR) of the stated 3-month rate, r3m ¼ 3:8364%, would satisfy the equation ð1 þ r3m =4Þ 2 ¼ 1 þ ESR=2.

This follows the logic of how we solve for the YTM. 00) 6m 12m 18m 24m To discount all the cash flows at some rate r to today, we would set up the following equation: 2:00 2:00 2:00 102:00 þ PV0 ¼  2 þ  3 þ  4 r r r r 1þ 1þ 1þ 1þ 2 2 2 2 Then we would solve for r such that the present value is equal to the initial investment PV0 ¼ 99:0538.
