in this swap? pay fixed, receive floating pay floating, receive fixed

pay fixed is long i believe

you are ‘long’ interest rate.

You are right. Thanks CSK. comp_sci_kid Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > you are ‘long’ interest rate.

on a related questions, if the MV of a swap is simply stated as being $10, does that mean that the long (fixed payer) owes a MV of $10, and therefore the floating rate is the one with credit risk?
