CONVERSION FACTORS

Every cash note or bond that is eligible for delivery into a Treasury futures contract has a conversion factor that reflects its coupon and remaining

time to maturity as of a specific delivery month. A conversion factor is the approximate decimal price at which $1 par of a security would trade if it

had a six percent yield-to-maturity.

A common misconception is that the DV01 of a Treasury security remains fixed as the yield of the instrument changes. In truth, the price-yield

relationship of a Treasury security is nonlinear; as yields fluctuate, the DV01 of a Treasury security changes.

factor = a x [ ( coupon/2) + c + d ] b

coupon

is the number of whole years from the first day of the delivery month to the maturity (or call) date of the bond or note.

is the number of whole months between n and the maturity (or call) date rounded down to the nearest quarter for the 10-Year U.S. Treasury Note

and 30-Year U.S. Treasury Bond futures contracts, and to the nearest month for the 2-Year, 3-Year and 5-Year U.S. Treasury Note futures contracts.

v = { zif z < 7

or { ( z 6 )if z 7 (for TU, 3YR, and FV)2

a = 1/1.03v / 6

b = ( coupon/2 ) x ( 6 v ) / 6

c = { 1/1.032n.. if z < 7 or { 1/1.032n + 1.. if otherwise

d = ( coupon/0.06 ) x ( 1 c )
