Swaps Help! Very Lost! Anyone lend a hand?
I’m having trouble with the swaps section of derivatives.
Conceptually at a big picture level I have an idea of what’s going on.
We wanna trade fixed for floating or vice versa with the use of financial instruments.
However when it comes down to
1: valuing a swap
2. pricing a swap and
2. calculating who gets paid
- I have no idea! This goes for the interest rate, currency and equity swaps!
It’s confusing and I need some help pretty badly. Does anyone have a summary or a explanation to guide me through this?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
