comment Why does it “say” portfolio diversification not suitable during market turmoil?
I accepted your answer, although it's a little beyond the technical playground I am at right now. But it does give me some insights to keep pushing.

I re-read both answers. I am novice to most of the methods and getting my feet wet with it now. I felt the below guy had explained more - although your is conscice. At this point - I need descriptive - more technical, less conscice. I am sure I need all of you guys expertise :)

I am still at a primary stage to appreciate your concise answer. Yet the jargon use itself can be my key words to search. +1

comment Market Standard Pricing Models for Fixed Income Securities (Vanilla)
@MattWolf checking it out. Will have more questions. I found a VBA based material with code as well as explaining how each model is built, but that was for options. (Willey press)

comment How to hedge the fixed leg of a swap contract?
Thanks Freddy. +1. I understand the basuc swap structure (fixed leg, variable leg). Now when you say *such fixed leg player is paying fixed rate and receiving fixed on other assets, hence fully hedged." I assume you meant to say an instituitional player. What if it is a retailer who ONLY did this swap and after sometime alobg this contract, he know he has been paying high rate. How can he lower what he is paying? What other assets can he use? Does it mean a futures, as it locks the price of something that he would

comment Is there an Australian Interbank Rate?
What about a cross currency swap? e.g. SGD/AUD assuming fix leg is in SGD and variable on AUD, what could be used? AUD Libor or BBSW? (ps: didn't notice there has been other answers here) [also with reference to your comment on : Good point, I didn't think the questions was about actual interbank lending, who does that these days? The swap market dwarfs depos. I just assumed the question was about fixings]
