Enhancement #3


For fx forwards, added support to subtract actual rate from spot rate


In previous release, for fx forwards, support was added for the implied forward rate between date 1 & date 2. For this, traders can use format “CCYCCY-FXIMP-CCY-HMUZ#”, for example. EURUSD-FXIMP-USD-M3.


In this week’s release, support was added to subtract the actual spot to HUMZ# swap rate from the fx forward implied rate. For this, traders can use format “CCYCCY-FXIMPB-CCY-HMUZ#”. For forwards, use format “CCYCCY-FXIMPB-CCY-HMUZ#-HUMZ#”, for example, “EURUSD-FXIMPB-USD-M3-M4”.
