Spot rates measure the yield on zero-coupon bonds at varying terms.
Swiss stock indices measures the value of stock in a specific section of the economy including banks, financial services, insurance, food and beverages, and health care.
Sport rates, or discount bonds, are returns on zero coupon bonds. Since zero coupon bonds are rarely issued, spot rates are based on prices of coupon bonds. The SNB uses the extended Nelson-Siegel model to estimate the yield on zero coupon bonds using coupon bonds. As such, spot rates should be viewed as yields on synthetic discount bonds.
