No. of Recommendations: 0
I'm considering buying an individual bond issue for the first time. Is there a way of figuring the proportional effect of general interest rate changes (eg. T-Notes) on the price of my individual bond? If I wanted to sell prior to maturity during rising interest rates is it just a given that the price will be less, but no way to know how much less relative to the general increase in interest rates? (Assuming no change in the rating of the issuer.)
Thanks
