[AUD] Added ability to use bond future for BM-CT on default
Traders can now choose to use the futures as the benchmarks to price the bonds by setting the spread between the bond and future. This will allow the trader to price the bond off the future.
To set the futures as the benchmarks, click on “Preferences” – “Use Bond Future for BM-CT”.
Check on “Save User Input CT Spread” to keep the overwritten benchmarks.
Take the 2.75 N29 bond, in the screenshot below, has the “XM1” bond future as the benchmark. The set spread is -10. Which sets the yield of the bond -10 basis points to the XMZ1future, 1.792 + (-.10) = 1.692, as the yield of the bond.
