A swap dealer quotes a euro midrate of 3.8175 percent (APR) in bond
equivalent yield with quarterly compounding for a two-year yen-per-euro currency coupon
swap. The corresponding two-year yen rate is 2.9291 percent (APR) in quarterly
compounded bond equivalent yield. The dealer charges an annual fee of ±8bp (±2bp per
quarter) around the euro swap mid-rate against yen three-month LIBOR flat. The swap
pricing schedule looks like this:
Currency Coupon Swap Pricing Schedule
Maturity Bid (in €) Ask (in €)
2 years 3.7375% 3.8975%
Quotes are against 1-year LIBOR Euroyen flat.
The spot exchange rate is ¥168.264/€.
PVIFA (present value interest factors for annuities) can be used to calculate present value of
annuities; multiply them by the coupon. Useful PVIFA include:
PVIFA(8 periods at the 3.8175%/4 = 0.954375% euro rate) = 7.66707456
PVIFA(8 periods at the 2.9291%/4 = 0.732275% yen rate) = 7.74268838
