 #asset-swap #finance #gale-using-and-tradning-asset-swaps The result of using MVA asset swap as opposed to par/par is that the counterparty exposure is switched from the seller taking the exposure to the buyer taking the exposure - the buyer will get 100 for bond redemption and, given that the swap was on full dirty price of a bond, he will get P-100 from the swap dealer (so the buyer waits for money back, taking the exposure).

 #economics #money the Basel capital requirement rules are of very limited use in preventing credit bubbles. All the banks would have to do is tell the vendors who arrive in their branches brandishing cheques for £100,000 that their deposit accounts are only paying 3% interest and that they would do better to subcribe for new shares in the bank, which pay 5% or 10% (in the good years). Shares in a bank are just a slightly different kind of 'money', but can be created out of thin air the same as the mortgage loan or the deposit.

realise what money is, namely the physical or electronic record of who owes whom how much; 'money' is a liability as much as it is an asset; you can only have cash in the bank if somebody somewhere owes the bank money.12.

Question
a "flat" short-term yield curve - in our example, the 3-month and 6-month rates are the same at 10.0% - does it imply that the market expects interest rates to remain stable?
No, it implies the market expects rates to fall (geometric average, reinvestment; also rate compounded twice has to be smaller than equivalent non-compounded rate over the same period). In other words, 6 month is equivalent to 3 months from now (known) and next 3 months unknown. for this compounding to work out to 10%, next 3 months (unknown) must be lower than 10%.
