Swap Portfolio returns

October 8th, 2018, 8:21 pm

Hi
Im trying to figure out the daily return of an IRS portfolio. What returns shall we use : log returns or arithmetic returns? 
How to deal with negative values for log returns, when the Swap strategy I am trying to evaluate goes from positive value today to negative value?
Any advice? The aim is to work out the portfolio/strategy Sharpe ratio.
Thanks for sharing ideas!
