Thank you, ncfa.

I know the price of a bond fluctuates with market interest rates, but I still don't understand why the risk that an investor faces is the price of a bond held in a portfolio will decline if market interest rates rise?

Thanks a lot!

well thats not basically an "interest rate risk" in context of the hedging .

consider it as a general rule too, idea is overall maximization of wealth. as int rate inc the ppl tend to follow int rate return as both r risk free so no worries sit and enjoy returns.

hopefully u get it now, u will clear ur ideas more when u read the overall Hedging tech 2.
