**Determine** **that the annualized equilibrium fixed swap rate for Japanese yen:**

The equilibrium swap fixed rate for yen is calculated as

‸rFIX,JPY=1−PV0,t4,JPY(1)4∑i=1PV0,t4,JPY(1)

The yen present value factors are calculated as

PV0,ti(1)=11+rSpoti(NADiNTD)

90-day PV factor = 1/[1 + 0.0005(90/360)] = 0.999875.

180-day PV factor = 1/[1 + 0.0010(180/360)] = 0.999500.

270-day PV factor = 1/[1 + 0.0015(270/360)] = 0.998876.

360-day PV factor = 1/[1 + 0.0025(360/360)] = 0.997506.

Sum of present value factors = 3.995757.

Therefore, the yen periodic rate is calculated as

‸rFIX,JPY=1−0.997506/3.995757=0.000624 or 0.0624%

The annualized rate is (360/90) times the periodic rate of 0.0624%, or 0.2496%.

**Why are we annualizing the result if we already used an annualized PV factor (360/360)?**
