Gilts Question

4 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I am trying to understand how the bonds market works, and I came to something I can't get, maybe someone here will help me?

See the document attached, T512 has maturity date 7 Mar 2012, 5%, currently trades at 100.640. From the source here on the 7th Mar I should get the redemption £100 + 2.5% = 102.5. So, if I buy at 100.640 today, it would give me almost 2% in two months? That's not possible, what I'm doing wrong?
