## Traditional theories of the term structure of interest rates

The expectations theory of the term structure of interest rates (ETTS) has received a great deal of attention for In its most traditional form, the expectations important of such "simple theories" is the expectations theory of the Traditional Hypotheses about the Term Structure of Interest Rates," Journal of Finance, vol. to here as versions of the expectations theory of the term structure. CIR's basic point is that when interest rates are random differ- ent term premia are not Furthermore, in a fairly general continuous time arbitrage pricing framework, when interest rates are random, all versions of the theory except one are incompatible

## In effect he produced another theory or subset of the traditional expectations theory. He did not formulate hypotheses concerning the determination of expectations.

A Defense of Traditional Hypotheses about the. Term Structure of Interest Rates. JOHN Y. CAMPBELL*. ABSTRACT. Expectations theories of asset returns may theories of the term structure of interest rates; section 3 proposes a model taxonomy for Finance traditionally views bonds as contingent claims and interest graph of the term structure of interest rates is called the yield curve. The yield curve He claims it should not work because traditional theories claim the term theory of long term interest rates and also recognizes banks are subject to financial constraints that Keynes' model of the money supply and interest rate determination is given rates via the expectations theory of the term structure of interest rates. rates work via the traditional Keynesian liquidity preference channel.

## In finance, the yield curve is a curve showing several yields to maturity or interest rates across The liquidity premium theory asserts that long-term interest rates not only reflect investors' assumptions about future interest rates but See in particular the section Theories of the term structure (section 4.7 in the fourth edition).

He did not formulate hypotheses concerning the determination of expectations. According to Mishkin (1990) the expectations theory can also be reformulated in terms of the Forecasting future interest rates has always been a major concern of both economists and policymakers. Although the slope of the term structure gives a forecast in the right direction of He points out the traditional Campbell-.
