< Reference Statistical Prices [Yields] for OTC Bond Transactions >
The following shows how the reference statistical prices [yields] for OTC bond transactions, which are the prices and yields that serve as reference for over-the-counter bond transactions, are calculated and presented. Please note that there is no guarantee that the bonds can be sold or purchased at these prices.
The reference statistical prices [yields] for OTC bond transactions consist of the “average,” “median,” “highest,” and “lowest” values of the quotations (mid-price quotations for buying and selling) reported by Designated-Reporting Members. The prices for bonds other than corporate bonds, etc. (corporate bonds, specified corporate bonds, and samurai bonds) are calculated using reported quotations after excluding a certain number of outlier quotations by members. The prices for corporate bonds etc. are calculated using all the reported quotations, including the highest and lowest prices.
The average value is the mathematical average price. The median value is the middle value when all the quotations are arranged from the lowest to highest values or vice versa. If the number of reported quotations is even, the median value is the average of the two middle values. The highest and lowest values represent the upper and lower end prices.
Designated-reporting members report quotations to the JSDA that serve as reference for transactions involving an amount of approximately \500 million in face value as of 3:00 p.m. on the business day that comes before the publication day.
If the number of the designated-reporting members is less than five, the reference statistical prices [yields] for OTC bond transactions for these issues are not calculated, and an asterisk (*) is placed in "Number of Reporting Members" columns.
The compound-interest yields for the fixed-rate JGBs, the spread over the basic interest rate for floating-rate JGBs, and the simple-interest yields and unit price for Treasury Discount Bills are posted for JGBs involved in pre-auction government bond transactions.
The spread over the basic interest rate for floating-rate JGBs is posted as an absolute value (no sign) to two decimal places in the “Price (Yen)” column.
The unit price posted for inflation-indexed JGBs does not take into account the price index coefficient.
An asterisk (*) in the “Coupon Rate” column indicates floating-rate bonds.
An asterisk (*) in the “Deviation” column indicates that the difference (absolute value) between the highest and lowest quotations is more than 0.5%.
