RBI uses Repo and Reverse repo as instruments for liquidity adjustment in the system

Coupon rate and Yield

The difference between coupon rate and yield arises because the market price of a security might be different from the face value of the security. Since coupon payments are calculated on the face value, the coupon rate is different from the implied yield.

10% Aug 2015 10 year Govt Bond Face Value RS.1000 Market Value Rs.1200 In this case Coupon rate is 10% Yield is 8.33% 1000*10 ----------= 8.33% 1200

Call Money Market

The call money market is an integral part of the Indian Money Market, where the day-today surplus funds (mostly of banks) are traded. The money that is lent for one day in this market is known as "Call Money", if it exceeds one day (but less than 15 days) it is referred to as "Notice Money".

Call Money Market

Banks borrow in this market for the following purpose To fill the gaps or temporary mismatches in funds To meet the CRR & SLR mandatory requirements as stipulated by the Central bank To meet sudden demand for funds arising out of large outflows.

Factors influencing interest rates

The factors which govern the interest rates are mostly economy related and are commonly referred to as macroeconomic factors. Some of these factors are: 1) Demand for money 2) Government borrowings 3) Supply of money 4) Inflation rate 5) The Reserve Bank of India and the Government policies determine some of the variables mentioned above.

Gilt edged securities

The term government securities encompass all Bonds & T-bills issued by the Central Government, and state governments. These securities are normally referred to, as "giltedged" as repayments of principal as well as interest are totally secured by sovereign guarantee.

Yield of Treasury Bill

Y= (100-P)*365*100 ----------------------P*D Y = Yield P= Price D =Days to maturity

91 days treasury bills maturing on 612-2008 Purchased on 12-10-2008 Rate quoted is Rs.99.1489 per Rs100
(100-99.1489)*365*100= 31065.15 ---------------------------(99.1489*55 days) =5453.18 =5.70%

A Debenture is a debt security issued by a company (called the Issuer), which offers to pay interest in lieu of the money borrowed for a certain period. These are long-term debt instruments issued by private sector companies. These are issued in denominations as low as Rs 1000 and have maturities ranging between one and ten years.

Difference between debenture and bond

Long-term debt securities issued by the Government of India or any of the State Governments or undertakings owned by them or by development financial institutions are called as bonds. Instruments issued by other entities are called debentures.

Current yield
This is the yield or return derived by the investor on purchase of the instrument (yield related to purchase price) It is calculated by dividing the coupon rate by the purchase price of the debenture. For e. g: If an investor buys a 10% Rs 100 debenture of ABC company at Rs 90, his current Yield on the instrument would be computed as: Current Yield = (10%*100)/90 X 100 , That is 11.11% p.a.

The relationship between time and yield on a homogenous risk class of securities is called the Yield Curve. The relationship represents the time value of money showing that people would demand a positive rate of return on the money they are willing to part today for a payback into the future


A yield curve can be positive, neutral or flat. A

positive yield curve, which is most natural, is when the slope of the curve is positive, i.e. the yield at the longer end is higher than that at the shorter end of the time axis. This results, as people demand higher compensation for parting their money for a longer time into the future. A neutral yield curve is that which has a zero slope, i.e. is flat across time. T his occurs when people are willing to accept more or less the same returns across maturities. The negative yield curve (also called an inverted yield curve) is one of which the slope is negative, i.e. the long term yield is lower than the short

Shape of Yield curve

LIBOR stands for the London Interbank Offered Rate and is the rate of interest at which banks borrow funds from other banks, in marketable size, in the London interbank market. LIBOR is the most widely used "benchmark" or reference rate for short term interest rates. It is compiled by the British Bankers Association as a free service and released to the market at about 11.00[London time] each day.


CRR is at present prescribed at 5.5% of demand and term liabilities (DTL) of the bank, respectively, under Reserve Bank of India Act of 1934. The minimum and maximum SLR are prescribed at 25% and 40% of DTL respectively, under Banking Regulation Act of 1949.Present SLR is 24%. The CRR and SLR are to be maintained on fortnightly basis.

Demand and Time Liabilities

Main components of DTL are: Demand deposits (held in current and savings accounts, margin money for LCs, overdue fixed deposits etc.) Time deposits (in fixed deposits, recurring deposits, reinvestment deposits etc.) Overseas borrowings Foreign outward remittances in transit (FC liabilities net of FC assets) Other demand and time liabilities (accrued interest, credit balances in suspense account etc. )

SLR is to be maintained in the form of the following assets: Cash balances (excluding balances maintained for CRR) Gold (valued at price not exceeding current market price) Approved securities valued as per norms prescribed by RBI.

Value at Risk (VaR) is the most probable loss that we may incur in normal market conditions over a given period due to the volatility of a factor, exchange rates, interest rates or commodity prices. The probability of loss is expressed as a percentage VaR at 95% confidence level, implies a 5% probability of incurring the loss; at 99% confidence level the VaR implies 1% probability of the stated loss. The loss is generally stated in absolute amounts for a given transaction value (or value of a investment portfolio).

A VaR of Rs. 100,000 at 99% confidence level for one week for a investment portfolio of Rs. 10,000,000 similarly means that the market value of the portfolio is most likely to drop by maximum Rs. 100,000 with 1% probability over one week.

Exchange Rate Quotation

Exchange Quotations : There are two methods Exchange rate is expressed as the price per unit of foreign currency in terms of the home currency is known as the Home currency quotation or Direct Quotation Exchange rate is expressed as the price per unit of home currency in terms of the foreign currency is known as the Foreign Currency Quotation or Indirect Quotation Direct Quotation is used in New York and other foreign exchange markets and Indirect Quotation is used in London foreign exchange market.

Direct Quotation: Buy Low, Sell High: The prime motive of any trader is to make profit. By purchasing the commodity at lower price and selling it at a higher price a trader earns the profit. In foreign exchange, the banker buys the foreign currency at a lesser price and sells it at a higher price. Indirect Quotation: Buy High, Sell Low: A trader for a fixed amount of investment would acquire more units of the commodity when he purchases and for the same amount he would part with lesser units of the commodity when he sells.

Spot and Forward Transactions

A Bank agrees to buy from B Bank USD 100000. The actual exchange of currencies i.e. payment of rupees and receipt of US Dollars, under the contract may take place : on the same day or two days later or some day later, say after a month.

Interpretation of Quotation
The market quotation for a currency consists of the spot rate and the forward margin. The outright forward rate has to be calculated by loading the forward margin into the spot rate. For example US Dollar is quoted as under in the inter-bank market on a given day as under : Spot 1 USD = Rs.44.1000/1300 Spot/November 0200/0500 Spot/December 1500/1800

TT Buying Rate
TT Buying Rate (TT stands for Telegraphic Transfer) This is the rate applied when the transaction does not involve any delay in realization of the foreign exchange by the bank. In other words, the nostro account of the bank would already have been credited. The rate is calculated by deducting from the inter-bank buying rate the exchange margin as determined by the Bank.

Bills Buying Rate

This is the rate to be applied when a foreign bill is purchased. When a bill is purchased, the proceeds will be realized by the Bank after the bill is presented to the drawee at the overseas center. In the case of a usance bill the proceeds will be realized on the due date of the bill which includes the transit period and the usance period of the bill.
