Modified Duration

A measure of the price sensitivity of a bond to interest rate movements. Equal to the Macaulay Duration divided by (1+ (bond yield/k)) where k is the number of compounding periods per year. It is therefore inversely proportional to the approximate percentage change in price for a given change in yield. This is one of two ways to calculate duration, the other being Macaulay duration.
