How is this topic vs the others? I noticed that its weighted as heavily as quant but not talked about as much as quant or econ on this forum. Is that because its relatively easier?
Nah. Fixed income has some tricky spots. I thought quant was easier.
http://cfainstitute.org/cfaprog/resources/l1_outline.html The study sessions pertaining to quant are sequenced much earlier in the curriculum than the readings for fixed income. I think it’s reasonable to assume many candidates are progressing through the readings sequentially and we’ll encounter more FI questions in the coming weeks.
