### Duration of FixedCoupon-LIBOR

Hojdard, are you sure that the short duration should be equal to the duration of IRS €? I guess it could be less because, there is no redemption of the principal in €?Thank you for your reply.

### Duration of FixedCoupon-LIBOR

<t>Thanks for your reply. You are right, but there is a problem, because we did only GBP-EUR cross currency floating-to-floating basis swap. The Euro fixed-float swap isn't done.So it implies that the cash-flows are as following:(1) We pay annually fixed EUR coupons for the next 15 years, principal ...

### Duration of FixedCoupon-LIBOR

<t>How would you calculate duration of the following instrument:A series of ten (FixedCouponRate-6MEuribor)*Notional "bonds", where the 1st has 1 year maturity, the 2nd 2 year maturity and so on.(Of course FixedCouponRate and Notional ae known.)Or actually duration of this position:1. Issue 10 Year ...

### CIR moments, quantils, VaR without simulations?

<t>Hi, is there any explicit solution for uncoditional expected Value and unconditional variance of the CIR model. If I want to use the CIR for VaR stuff, do I really need to make simulations of the short rate and then use the close form formula of the yield courve and find quantils? Or would it be ...

### Yield curve from one factor model

Hi,I need to simulate the whole yield curve from one factor model (CIR). How can I do it so that I obtain realistic yield curves? (I estimated CIR from time series of Pribor (Prague) and want to use this for calculating VaR.)Thank You for any suggestions.

### Interest Rate Modelling

<t>Actually I would like to use the models for VaR, more specifically - as a Government Bond Issuer - for estimating possible future cupon cost of the state debt. So far I have used historical simulation which gives good results but Interest Rates models seems to be more sophisticated.Than You for a...

### Interest Rate Modelling

<t>I would like to model Interest Rates (e.g. Libor). I know about Vasicek, CIR, etc. models but it seems to me that this models are only suitable for pricing, not for any predictions. Am I right? If I can use them for modelling (predictions) not pricing, can I get their parameters (calibrate them) ...
