What is an ‘Implied Rate’
An implied rate is an interest rate that is determined by the difference between the spot rate and the forward/futures rate. The degree of relative costliness of a future rate can be assessed by comparing the implied rate with the spot rate.
Explaining ‘Implied Rate’
For example, if the present spot rate of LIBOR is 5% and the forward rate for LIBOR is 6%, the implied rate is 1%. This situation merits the impression that the future rate for borrowing will be more expensive.
