Definition: Yield on a 10-year government bond is the anticipated return on such investment, expressed as an annual percentage of the original investment. The yield on a bond is based on both the purchase price of the bond and the interest promised – also known as the coupon payment.
Although a bond’s coupon rate is usually fixed, its price fluctuates continuously in response to changes in interest rates in the economy, demand for the instrument, time to maturity, and credit quality of that particular bond.
As a result, after bonds are issued, they trade at premiums or discounts to their face values until they mature and return to full face value.
10-year government bond is a debt security issued by the Central government with a residual maturity of 10 years. It is used as a benchmark and guide for interest rates on lending products.
