Economic Modelling, 2019, vol. 77, issue C, 124-132
This paper investigates the relationship between the volatility of government bond yields and liquidity using daily data. We introduce a novel measure of liquidity called Repo Spread created from Reserve Bank of India's recent liquidity operation called Term Repo Operation. The result indicates that liquidity variable has significant explanatory power on the volatility of security yields. Further, we find Repo Spread has significant predictive power on the volatility of government security yields.
