USD swaps observe both New York and London holidays. If the maturity date is a bad day, it is adjusted ...

Can you specify what you are thinking of in terms of a regression model to estimate these? Obviously $r_0$ will not be a stable parameter. If you want to estimate $\sigma$, ...


In practice, you can calibrate to either 1 month libor or 3 month libor, but not both. That's because there's a basis swap between 1 month libor and 3 month libor that can't be explained by your model.
