Bond J is a 4% coupon bond. Bond K is a 12% coupon bond. Both bonds have nine years to maturity, make semiannual payments, and have a YTM of 8%. If interest rates suddenly rise by 2%, what is the percentage price change of these bonds? What if rates suddenly fall by 2% instead? What does this problem tell you about the interest rate risk of lower-coupon bonds?
