### Modified duration vs Spread duration

Hi guys-Just wondering what's the different between the two? I am looking at a eurobond and spread duration is almost 0.5 higher. Which one is most used in the finance circles? Shortly, which duration metric does matter?Thanks!

### Central Bank Rate

Hello, where can I find or how can I calculate central bank policy rate probabilities? There's a function on Bloomberg WIRP but not for every central bank. Is there a quick and dirty way to calculate it? Thank you.

### Regression Confusion

<t>Thanks Dave, yeah another friend I just mailed said the same thing. Use natural logs..What confuses me is that if taking natural log is the right approach, what does regressing daily VIX returns on daily SPX returns tell?

### Regression Confusion

<t>Hi I'm regressing daily VIX returns on SPX returns since 2000 the slope coefficient is -3.51. But when I take the natural logs of both index values and run a regression I get -1.25. Why is the difference? I thought when you take a natural log of a series and run a regression the slope is the cons...

### Inverted CDS curve

<t>I am having a hard time to understand the dynamics of the inverted CDS curve. (Alphaville)So, when the the curve is inverted the probability of default goes up in the near term than in the long term so does the cost of the CDS. So when the issuer defaults on a short term issue, does it not also t...

### Implied Volatilty Calculation

<t>Thanks for your answers!!!I used goal seek and got the results... however I was wondering if I could solve the equation by solving the whole B-S equation (mathematically) coming back from the option price, not by iteration. Obviously there's no way to do that I can't say I'm really good in math o...
