English term or phrase: coupon cushion
Ojalá me puedan ayudar con esta expresión. De antemano, gracias mil. He aquí el contexto:
But yields now stand at very low levels and, as such, provide little “coupon cushion” in a rising rate environment. This forebodes considerable principal or market risk from the perspective of central banks invested in U.S. Treasuries.

cupón amortiguador


Explanation:
Bono amortiguador: Bonos con cupones elevados que se venden a un precio moderado porque son realizables a un precio por debajo del cual se vendería un bono no realizable.

English: Cushion bonds

Definition of 'Cushion Bond'
A type of callable bond that sells at a premium because it carries a coupon rate that is above market interest rates. A cushion bond's call feature means that it will be priced on a yield-to-call basis (meaning it can be redeemed prior to maturity), rather than on a yield-to-maturity basis; this relatively shortened maturity decreases its sensitivity to changes in interest rates. A cushion bond is so called because its resilience to interest rate fluctuations provides a cushion or a degree of protection against rate changes, especially when they are rising.

Espero poder ayudarte. Saludos!!

protección precaria


Explanation:
'Pero en la actualidad los rendimientos se encuentran en niveles sumamente bajos, por lo cual no representan/proporcionan más que una escasa/protección precaria en un entorno alcista de tasas de interés'

Basta que los tipos de interés del mercado suban un poco para que la pérdida de valor de los bonos iguale, o supere la suma de lo redituado por los cupones, dando como resultado operaciones sin ganancia alguna o con pérdidas. Si las tasas de interés suben mucho, la pérdida de valor de los bonos puede llegar a ser muy importante, o sea que las pérdidas son variables y pueden llegar a ser grandes, mientras que los cupones son bajos y, en la mayoría de los casos, no variables.
