Having not owned bonds/Gilts through an interest rate raising cycle, what is the expected downward impact on bond/Gilt prices with raising interest? Interest rates are forecast to rise 0.5% by next May, though this could happen as early as this November. Presumably, just a 0.5% ride will not have a huge impact on bond/Gilt prices, especially since. What kind of changes in interest rate might produce what approximate downward impact on prices?
This may be of interest to some.http://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/052814/these-sectors-benefit-rising-interest-rates.asp
