What is Bond Yield?
The interest earned on the bond is called the bond yield. The interest on the bond is already paid at fixed rates. There is no change of any kind in it. The maturity period of the bond can be from 1 to 30 years. As the bond’s value decreases, its yield increases. Whereas the yield decreases as the price of the bond increases. Due to increase in bond yields, there is a risk of increasing interest rates in the economy. Due to which the loan will become expensive. Home loans, personal loans, become costlier and demand starts falling which affects the investment.
