High-yield bonds hold a particularly unique space in the debt market. From many aspects, literature suggests these assets to behave more like stocks than bonds. Given the significant similarities between the high-yield bond and stock markets, it is expected for these markets to be similarly affected by certain outside factors. Some shocks, including the ones from energy markets, are known to impact the entire stock market and not just related company shares. Since high-yield bond portfolios include some amount of energy company debt, the recent volatility in energy prices has been particularly concerning to market participants. However, the question of whether price and volatility shocks only impact energy company bonds or the entire high-yield bond market - as they do with the stock market - still remains unanswered. This study attempts to address that question by exploring the dynamic relationships between the high-yield bond and energy markets. Price transmission tests, which account for gradual structural shifts, suggest oil and ethanol markets significantly impacting the high-yield bond market. Furthermore, volatility tests find uni-directional volatility transmitting from energy markets to the high-yield bond market.

EXAMINATION OF BOND RISK PREMIA FROM THE BANKING PERSPECTIVE
Orhan, Selim; Danışoğlu, Seza; Department of Financial Mathematics (2022-5-10)
Banks are considered as the marginal and sophisticated investors of financial markets. This is evident in the Haddad and Sraer (2020) study that examines the US government bond excess returns. This study extends the Haddad/Sraer analysis to the Turkish government bond market. According to the forecasting results, exposure ratio provides explanatory power over bond excess returns, especially for longer maturities. On the other hand, output gap and industrial growth present strong in-sample forecasting power ...
Multi-objective approaches to public debt management
Balıbek, Emre; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Operational Research (2008)
Public debt managers have a certain range of borrowing instruments varying in their interest rate type, currency, maturity etc. at their disposal and have to find an appropriate combination of those while raising debt on behalf of the government. In selecting the combination of instruments to be issued, i.e. the borrowing strategy to be pursued for a certain period of time, debt managers need to consider several objectives that are conflicting by their nature, and the uncertainty associated with the outcome...
Credit rating changes and the government cost of borrowing in Turkey
Gürer, Murat; Derin Güre, Pınar (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2016-8)
Standard and Poor’s (S&P), Moody’s and Fitch have been producing credit ratings for government bonds and corporate bonds. Changes in credit ratings affect the investors’ decisions and government cost of borrowing as well. 2008 global financial crisis is an important milestone for the credit rating agencies since during the crisis period high rated countries faced with deep economic fluctuations, which decreased creditworthiness of these agencies. This paper investigates the relationship between soverei...

Pricing inflation-indexed swaps and swaptions using an hjm model
Temiz, Zeynep Canan; Hayfavi, Azize; Department of Financial Mathematics (2009)
Inflation-indexed instruments provide a real return and protect investors from the erosion of the purchasing power of money. Hence, inflation-indexed markets grow very fast day by day. In this thesis, we focus on pricing of the inflation-indexed swaps and swaptions which are the most liquid derivative products traded in the inflation-indexed markets. Firstly, we review the Hull-White extended Vasicek model in the HJM framework. Then, we use this model to price inflation-indexed swaps. Also, pricing of infla...
