Suppose the September CBOT Treasury bond futures contract has a quoted price of 89-09. What is the implied annual interest rate inherent in this futures contract? Assume this contract is based on a 20 year Treasury bond with semi-annual interest payments. The face value of the bond is $1000, and the semi-annual coupon payments are $30. The annual coupon rate on the bonds is $60 per bond (or 6%). The futures contract has 100 bonds.

    N: 40
    PV = (0.89+0.09/32) × $1,000 = -$892.81
    FV = $1,000
    PMT = $30
    I/YR = 3.5%

    Annual rate: I/YR × 2 = 7.00%
